Annual Mother’s Day Celebration
Mothers’s Day for Mother Earth

StoneLion’s goal is to bring awareness to environmental issues in our own area and to provide realistic opportunities for change and involvement through the art of puppetry. Clean water, clean planet. Additional festivals will be held at Lakeside Nature Center, Gregg Klice Community Center and The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art.

StoneLion is available for interviews at your convenience. LET’S TALK. Help us spread the word. Our colorful and visual puppets can come to you for interviews as well.

Sponsored by The Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, Kansas City Parks and Recreation, Kansas City Power and Light, The ArtsKC Fund, United Inner City Services and The Law Offices of Lance Loewenstein P.C.

Celebrate with activities inspired by our featured exhibition, A Shared Legacy: Folk Art in America, mothers and Mother Earth!

Join StoneLion Puppet Theatre in the area’s largest free community art performance. The 9th annual Mother’s Day for Mother Earth celebration and giant puppet show will feature the life cycle of the honey be with 14’ bees, dancing flowers, enormous butterflies and of course honeycomb.
