Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are

comes to the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore.
Original illustration by Maurice Sendak
The touring exhibition, Maurice Sendak: The Memorial Exhibition - 50 Years, 50 Works, 50 Reasons is playful, interactive, and larger than life.  
The little red boat that took Max to the land of Monsters is life size!
The 2nd floor of the library is now one large picture book.
50 original illustrations and artworks by Maurice Sendak are on display, including his original storyboard illustrations for Shakespeare's Macbeth.  They are wonderful.
Sendak was only 16 years old when he did these illustrations for his High School English class.
The exhibition also shows some of his other illustrations such as this set design (1979) for the opera Where the Wild Things Are.
Enoch Pratt Free Library is offering the book in other languages.
You can experience the exhibition at the Enoch Pratt Free Library until January 4, 2015.  
The next stop will be Salt Lake City Public Library from January 16 - March 8, 2015.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
