Wild Thing on the Wall
June 10, 2013 § Leave a comment
Maurice Sendak: a Celebration of the Artist and His Work, an exhibit of the Sendak originals, opens tomorrow at the Society of Illustrators in NYC! The exhibit features over 200 pieces, including some unpublished Where the Wild Things Are art. I’m curious to see if more Wild Things adds to the story or if it takes away from the dream-like quality of the book.
The Society of Illustrators is a cool place to visit anyway. Last time I went, there was a Harvey Kurtzman exhibit (ends today, apparently), and I have a blurry memory of a great Western art collection in the bar.
The Maurice Sendak exhibit ends August 17th.
