Maira Kalman exhibition at the Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum presents:

Maira Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World)

March 11, 2011 – July 31, 2011

Working as an illustrator, author, and designer, Kalman illuminates contemporary life with a profound sense of joy and a unique sense of humor. This exhibition features a selection of original works on paper that span thirty years of illustration for publication. Also on view are less widely seen works in photography, embroidery, textiles, and performance. As a context for this survey, Kalman has created a special installation by furnishing the gallery with chairs, ladders, and “many tables of many things”—drawn from her collections.

The exhibition opens this Friday.  You can see more information about the exhibition and events schedule here.
