The art of Maurice Sendak is on display at the Rapid City Public Library through Sept. 1. Sendak is known for rather dark children's stories, illustrated with finely detailed drawings of fantastical beasts. The artist and writer has appealed to children and adults for generations. He died in 2012 at the age of 83, after a 65-year career. SDPB's Victoria Wicks has this story from the kickoff party this weekend.
