Fans of “Where the Wild Things Are” will instantly recognize the artist. There are no monsters in the mural, but the characters have that very distinctive walk. After a legal battle with the Sendak Foundation, Philly got to keep this beautiful artwork – Sendak’s only known existing mural. The mural (originally painted on the wall of a New York City apartment), now lives on the first floor of the South Philadelphia branch of the Free Library. You can view the mural from windows at street level or pop inside for a closer view.
