Wild Things Are Happening: The Art of Maurice Sendak celebrates the work of Jewish-American artist Maurice Sendak, creator of the acclaimed children’s books Where the Wild Things Are (1963), In the Night Kitchen (1970), and Outside Over There (1980). This exhibition is the first major Sendak retrospective since his death in 2012, and the largest and most complete exhibition of his work to date.
