We recently traveled to Austin, Texas for the grand opening of the new Muppets-themed fine art show at the ART on 5th gallery! The show was hosted by Disney Fine Art, who also distributes the pieces. It was sensational, inspirational, and all-around Muppetational fun! The gallery featured over 30 pieces of hand-painted artwork showcasing Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo, Animal, and more favorite Muppets. The show included the work of incredibly talented artists like Neysa Bove, Trevor Carlton, Rodel Gonzalez, Michelle St. Laurent, and more! Artist Tim Rogerson was at the gallery opening in-person, live painting new portraits of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.
Take a look below at some of our favorite pieces from the show. These pictures really don’t compare to seeing the art in person, so if you find yourself in the Austin area, make sure to visit ART on 5th and check out the show, which runs through July 23rd.
