Preserving a legacy: Saline puppeteer’s work lives on through digital archive (MLive)

MLive: Preserving a legacy: Saline puppeteer’s work lives on through digital archive. “For a half century, Meredith Bixby and the Meredith Marionette Touring Company entertained school-aged kids with puppet shows throughout southeast Michigan and across the eastern United States….Nearly 250,000 people attended Bixby’s shows annually during his career from the 1930s to ’80s, with Meredith’s Marionettes performing more than 20,000 times during his career, making Bixby one of the most well known marionettists in the U.S. Now, a new interactive digital archive created by the Saline Arts and Culture Committee aims to bring Bixby’s legacy to life in a brand new way.”
