I was going to travel to Wyoming this summer, but, you know, life happened. So I didn’t get to see this exhibit. But it’s a cool idea and I hope it or something similar is replicated in a museum near me:
From common pets to mythical beasts, nearly all of the 108 books illustrated by Maurice Sendak include animals of some kind. Drawn from the Rosenbach Museum and Library’s collection of original Sendak material, this exhibition showcases wild things alongside their more domestic counterparts. Sendak’s veritable bestiary ranges from dogs, farm animals, and well-behaved bears to the famous Wild Things and their untamed brethren.
