Muppet Dawn is a sculpture installed in Magruder Park in 2016, near where Jim Henson’s family lived in the late 1940s.
The sculpture by artist Bill Culbertson (who also did some design work for Disney including The Dino Institute logo relief sculptures) honors Henson’s earliest work in TV by featuring characters from Sam and Friends on a flower planter. Among the characters is Kermit, who made his debut on the show before going on to become the leader of The Muppets franchise (now owned by The Walt Disney Company).
