Where The Wild Things Are: Maurice Sendak In His Own Words And Pictures Opens November 16 at The Breman Museum

And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!”

Bring the whole family to the opening of the exhibition Where The Wild Things Are: Maurice Sendak In His Own Words And Pictures and stay for a day full of fun family activities!

For over fifty years Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are has delighted and captivated readers both young and old. This exhibition celebrates Sendak’s life and work by showcasing his most famous pieces through preliminary sketches, finished artwork, and interactive displays. All of this is told through the words of Sendak himself, intimately connecting artist to art. 

The exhibition aims at promoting an appreciation of the creative genius of Maurice Sendak and his art by highlighting the importance of early childhood reading as it relates to language development and literacy. The exhibition also emphasizes art as an important and effective tool for children and adults alike in coping with stressful situations that arise in every day life. New sections of the exhibition have been developed through partnerships with both the 
Atlanta Speech School’s Rollins Center for Language and Literacy and the Georgia Art Therapy Association.
