The major part of the Cook/Marks collection has relocated to Seattle. The remainder will be there by this spring. The material is now part of the Northwest Puppetry Center collection. Having acquired a new building, the NWPC is now able to store this remarkable collection. We are certain that the NWPC will showcase the puppets and make them accessible to the northwest community.
IPM is planning to vacate the building on Fair Oaks in Pasadena. We will remain active going through puppet related memorabilia and other files of importance to the history of puppetry. We are working on a plan to remain active. We will keep you informed on our activities and progress.
Northwest Puppet Center
was invited to submit a project to this new online giving program and right now Raynier Institute & Foundation is matching gifts, contributing $1 for each $1 donated!
This will help get a new heating system installed in the new building, incredibly important for the on-going care of the collection. If you are able to make a gift, this is a great time to contribute. Please also share to others who might be interested in making a gift.

A book about collector Alan Cook is still in the works
Contributions to implement the publication are welcome. Your pledge will ensure that Alan’s life-long devotion to preserving this heritage will be acknowledged.
Your continued IPM membership is the support needed to continue our work of organizing the accumulation of documents, catalogues, photographs and posters. Your support will be appreciated more than words can tell.
