Sesame St. comes to the MS Museum of Art

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Sesame Street star wows children at the Mississippi Museum of Art this afternoon.

Roscoe Orman, known as Gordon on the beloved children's show, led dozens of parents and their kids in a holiday sing-a-long.

It is all a part of Jim Henson's fantastic world, a new exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution's traveling exhibition services. Henson was a Leland, Mississippi native and the creator of the longest running children's show Sesame Street.

His film Emmett Otter's jug band Christmas was shown Saturday in the Museum's Grand Hall.

"I hope the kids take away a great family fun day here during the Christmas holidays and get to come see the Mississippi Museum of art and learn a little about Jim Henson and actually get to watch one of his films in person,"

This exhibit will be at the Mississippi Museum of Art until March 14th.
