Museum Mural


On national public radio, there was a piece of news that caught my attention.  Two years before Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak was published in 1961, he illustrated on a bedroom wall, a mural of a parade seen above which has recently been donated to a museum.  Apparently the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philidelphia has a whole Sendak collection seen HERE.  I wanna go!

  1. That's awesome! We love Sendak over here. Jake was in the original cast of Where the Wild Things Are play. We've seen it performed a couple times since.
