Opening Night: Maira Kalman’s Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World)

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Hurrah for Maira! Our crazy world has never seemed so lovely.

On Tuesday evening, approximately 350 guests gathered at The Jewish Museum to see Maira Kalman and the highly anticipated exhibition Maira Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World). Kalman stood at the entrance to the first gallery greeting each guest. From artists, to curators, to friends, all had a great time. Guests appreciated the unique, homey setting that the Warburg Mansion provided for viewing the exhibition. The installation allowed visitors to explore an artwork one moment and the next moment to observe the hustle and bustle of New York City from the windows over looking Central Park. The original cabinetry from what was the Warburg’s music room (now Heller Gallery) features video installations of Kalman’s Elements of Style song cycle. Click to continue »
