The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is home to award-winning puppets and puppeteers appearing on stage, on television, and in our community.
Blueberry’s Clubhouse is an original television series for young viewers and families created by the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts in partnership with Arkansas PBS.
The series follows Blueberry, a curious puppet, as she guides young Arkansans through engaging and insightful activities at Camp Onomatopoeia. Blueberry and friends explore the stories, animals, and laughs found in the Natural State – including visits to the Mosaic Templar’s Cultural Center, Mid America Science Museum, Central Arkansas Library System, and other exciting Arkansas destinations.
AMFA created, voiced, and manipulated the puppets, designed and built the sets, and fabricated props to create television magic with Arkansas PBS on Blueberry’s Clubhouse.
