AFA announces a retrospective in loving memory of Maurice Sendak. The exhibition will open on Saturday, June 9th, the day before what would have been the artist's 84th birthday, and will remain on display through Labor Day.

The collection includes nearly 50 original works, including published pieces, conceptual art and a bronze sculpture. This "Wild Thing" sculpture was launched in 2009 to celebrate the largest gallery exhibition that Mr. Sendak had during his extensive career, and was a collaboration with AFA gallery owner, Nicholas Leone.

EXHIBITION | June 9th - September 3rd, 2012
