The kids will love 50 Years, 50 Works, 50 Reasons Maurice Sendak: The Memorial Exhibition. Organized to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Sendak's classic Where the Wild Things Are. The exhibition features original illustrations for the book, which won the prestigious Caldecott Medal for pictorial excellence in 1964. The narrative follows a boisterous and adventurous young boy named Max who, having been sent to his room for misbehaving, ends up taking a rollicking trip to an island inhabited by Wild Things who crown him King before he returns home. The exhibition includes designs for an animated short film, a feature film, and an opera based on the book as well as a selection of works from the many other picture books that Sendak illustrated and examples from Sendak's second career as a stage and costume designer. On view through December 31.
