Subject: [Puptcrit] Wolo mural images

Here [see Attachments below] are images from the New Pisa Restaurant in San Francisco painted by Wolo von Trutzschler, who authored 6 published books for children. Right now at Storybook Theater in Oakland's Fairyland Park at Lake Merritt, a puppet show based on Wolo's "Happy Valley" book after Wolo designs, is performing weekends. The show was first presented when Lewis Mahlmann was director of the Storybook Theater.

Wolo also performed at Fairyland Park on Day of Puppetry in earlier times.

John Burton worked at New Pisa Restaurant and saved the images from attic storage. He is considering selling them.

Wolo's son has a webpage with Wolo sketches, & cartoons he did for San Francisco Chronicle, photo w/ puppet  & Greeting cards which he did for Molliy & Bob Falkenstein (Molly was a puppeteer in Laguna Beach CA, Bob was in Printing business). see




Like many other puppeteers, Wolo's creativity included other talents besides puppetry, which enrched his puppet work.
