A wonderful, immersive experience awaits this winter at the Columbus Museum of Art.

The CMA, in partnership with The Maurice Sendak Foundation, is presenting the first major retrospective of Maurice Sendak’s work since his death in 2012. The exhibition, on view until March 5, features over 150 sketches, storyboards, and paintings from the foundation’s collection.

Visitors will have the opportunity to view original artwork from Sendak’s most famous books, such as Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, and Outside Over There. Additionally, the exhibition will showcase Sendak’s work for other celebrated publications, such as The Bat-Poet by Randall Jarrell and Zlateh the Goat by Isaac Bashevis Singer, as well as designs for his opera, theater, film, and television productions.

An international tour is planned following the exhibition in Columbus. Please note, admission to this exhibition will require an additional fee. More information is available here.

The Columbus Museum of Art (CMA) offers a wide range of art experiences for all visitors to enjoy. We aim to celebrate, cultivate, and champion creativity in everyone. Its collection includes American and European modern art, Impressionism, German Expressionism, Cubism, folk art, contemporary art, glass, photography, and more. It also has a diverse schedule of special exhibitions on view year-round.

The JPMorgan Chase Center for Creativity features thoughtfully designed exhibitions and galleries to stimulate curiosity and creative thinking.

The museum is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers, and we have an on-site Museum Store and Schokko Cafe. Photography is encouraged. If you’re just looking to shop, parking and general admission are free. You can find a variety of creative goods and good design at the Museum Store.
