Wild Things at the Jewish Museum (Just in Time for the Movie)
Just in time for the highly anticipated Where the Wild Things Are movie (an indie love fest of the highest degree - screenplay by Dave Eggers, directed by Spike Jonze and featuring music from Karen O and Arcarde Fire) comes "There’s a Mystery There: Sendak on Sendak" at the Jewish Museum.
Considered the leading visionary of children's literature today, Maurice Sendak has illustrated more than 50 books over his long career. The CJM retrospective, which opens September 8, is the largest exhibition of Sendak’s work, featuring 100 original watercolors, drawings, rare sketches and the author’s never-before-seen working materials.
Go check it out.
