Where the Wild things are.

The Jewsish Museum of Australia has an exhibition opening today which will spark childhood memories of exciting adventures with wild beasts (I was always a little bit terrified but I'd never admit to it).

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak in his own words is on at the Loti Smorgon Gallery from 25 July until the 29 October.

It is an exhibition for people of all ages, a hands-on interaction with Sendak's stories and characters. Dress up like a "Wild Thing", dance in the wild forest, cook in the "Night Kitchen," read on Rosie's stoop, slide into a bowl of chicken soup, and create your own masterpieces while listening to classical music. The "voice" of the exhibition is Sendak himself and focuses on his lifework through the lens of his Jewish heritage.

Sunday's for the first month are free too. So get on down there and be reinspired all over again to conquer the jungle, be king and still be home in time for supper.

Want a reminder? You can listen to an extract here.
