‘Where the Wild Things Are’ drawings go up at Museum of Science and Industry
HYDE PARK — The original drawings from Maurice Sendak’s children’s classic “Where the Wild Things Are” have just gone up for a new exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry.
On Thursday, the museum, 5700 S. Lake Shore Drive, opened “Where the Wild Things Are: The Works of Maurice Sendak” with 48 original drawings by the author and illustrator.
Four of the original lithographs — with mellow and muted colors, as Sendak always wanted them for the children’s classic — are the centerpiece of the exhibit, which is included with entry to the museum.
