“MAURICE SENDAK: 50 YEARS, 50 WORKS, 50 REASONS” SHOW
A show I saw in the recent issue of Juxtapoz was a show that starts tonight at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Fransisco, CA. I am totally envious that this is too far away from me to be able to attend but this also seems to flown below my radar so this is a big surprise as to this existing. From May 23 to July 7, 2013, The Walt Disney Family Museum presents the special exhibition Maurice Sendak: 50 Years, 50 Works, 50 Reasons. The exhibition features 50 works by the legendary author and illustrator, accompanied by 50 statements from celebrities, authors, and noted personalities on the influence of Sendak’s work, all in celebration the 50th anniversary of his universally revered book, Where the Wild Things Are. The exhibition includes 50 original works from Where the Wild Things Are in a variety of mediums including sketches, illustrations, and works on paper, and showcases highlights from Sendak’s career and the diverse art forms in which he was renowned. Many of the works are from private collections and friends of the artist, offering a survey of his range as an artist and author. Further details about the show and ticketing can be found HERE.
