We Found the Wild Things!

Maurice Sendak exhibit opens at the MSI


Have you ever wondered where the wild things really are? Technically they’re inside Maurice Sendak’s imagination, but starting Nov. 10, you can find them at the Museum of Science and Industry. The new exhibit, Where the Wild Things Are: The Works of Maurice Sendak, goes so much deeper into Sendak’s work and beyond the Wild Things. You’ll see recently unearthed 60-year-old sketches from his time in high school; concept illustrations from the 2009 movie; a self portrait; sketches from a 1984 production of The Nutcracker; and so much more. Whether you’re a big kid yourself or taking your kids to the museum, you’ll love grabbing a selfie in front of Max’s sailboat from Where the Wild Things Are. The exhibit runs through Feb. 20 and cost of entry is included in your general museum ticket ($18 for adults, $11 for kids ages 3 to 11).
