Deolmi Puppets in Atlanta

This year the Center for Puppetry Arts (CPA) in Atlanta, Georgia, acquired a full set of deolmi puppets (a.k.a. Korean traditional puppets or kkokdukasi puppets) and props made by Master Yong-Tae Park.  Professor Kyounghye Kwon at the University of North Georgia, handled the negotiations with Dr. Seha Kim, Director of the Seoul Namsadang troupe. Kyounghye plans to travel to Korea this spring for further research. 

CPA is looking for other sets in USA Collections. CPA does have a loan policy.

CPA Museum Expansion plans, scheduled for 2015 completion, can be seen at:
