SCHENECTADY– “Rowlf and Muppet Friends” will be displayed in the Finkle Display Case at the Schenectady Jewish Community Center on the Golub Family Campus at 2565 Balltown Rd., from Jan. 2 to Feb. 27.

Ari Kasper who created the seven large size muppets, started at the age of seven attending art classes at the Living Resources Carriage House Art Center. He expresses himself through his detail-oriented sculptures. Kasper  has indicated that he enjoys the planning phase of the Muppet just as much as the completed piece. The Muppets resemble the original Sesame Street Muppets and were made with plaster of Paris and acrylic paint.

These sculptures drew smiles and delight from audiences attending the Center’s second annual Capital Capabilities Festival, an event celebrating the creative talents of individuals with disabilities according to exhibit organizers.

The Living Resources is an organization dedicated to provide life-enhancing services for individuals with disabilities.

Jewish Cultural Director, Irit Magnes at 377-8803, ext. 235, or iritm@schenectadyjcc.org can provide details.
