MOVE TO NORTHWEST PUPPET CENTER (NWPC)
Over the past six decades, Alan Cook has amassed an internationally acclaimed collection of over 5,000 puppets. Included are traditions from around the world and works by prominent puppeteers from the past few centuries. After a panel of artists, consultants and advisors carefully considered institutions across the West Coast, the Northwest Puppet Center was chosen to become the permanent home for the collection.
The Cook/Marks Collection is named for Alan Cook and Jacqueline Marks. In 1999, a group of friends gathered in California to help Alan with the important task of organizing the collection and helping decide on a permanent home. Jacqueline has been one of these dedicated volunteers and a generous benefactor. A very kind and visionary contribution by the Jacqueline Marks Fund of The California Community Foundation has been made to support the endeavor.
