Let the wild rumpus start!

Wild things are taking over New Britain Museum of American Art. Visitors can roar their terrible roars, gnash their terrible teeth, roll their terrible eyes, show their terrible claws and even draw on the walls.

The exhibit “Maurice Sendak” opens this weekend, focusing largely on Sendak’s legendary children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are,” which was published 50 years ago.
