I drove out to Orange County over the weekend to see the Maurice Sendak: 50 Years, 50 Works, 50 Reasons exhibition at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana. If you are a fan of Sendak's work, of art, of drawings, of children's books, etc., and if you are anywhere near Orange County before April 28, 2013, you REALLY SHOULD check out this show. I just love his work, and it was amazing to see his drawings, watercolors and prints in person. Here are pics (the pics really don't do the works justice --- so sorry some of the pics are fuzzy -- it is hard to take decent pics of art that is framed under plexi, particularly with dim lighting and an old iphone camera!) to give you an idea of what is on view in this exhibition.
