Sendak in Spring
On the ﬁrst weekend of Spring, bring the whole family to the Rosenbach to celebrate the work of famed author and illustrator Maurice Sendak — creator of Where the Wild Things Are.
Drop in anytime between noon and 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday to participate in a call and response storytelling session led by storytellers, Irma Gardner & Ed Stokes and create a 3D book with renowned book artist Jude Robison.
At 1:00 and 3:00 pm, catch a performance of the Wild Things Whirligig, a dynamic, interactive performance which weaves together classic Sendak characters with music by the composers who inspired him, such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Festival activities and Whirligig performances are included in the price of museum admission but registration for the Whirligig performances is required. To register for Whirligig tickets in advance, please stop by the museum’s front desk, starting on Tuesday, March 2nd 2011, select the performance date and time of your choice, and pre-pay the applicable admission fees. Can’t make it to the museum before the festival? Performance tickets will also be distributed on festival days.
Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $5 for students, and free for children under 5. The Rosenbach Museum & Library is located at 2008-2010 Delancey Place in Philadelphia and is open Tuesday through Sunday.
