Maira and Alex Kalman Present Sara Berman's Dream Double Feature
At 60, Sara Berman left her husband in the middle of the night with just one suitcase. Saying goodbye to everything she owned, she moved to New York City. It was a liberation. She went to MoMA every week. She was wild about Fred Astaire and Danny Kaye and watched all their movies. After her death, her daughter Maira Kalman and grandson Alex Kalman recreated her immaculate closet at Mmuseumm as an exhibition exploring how a life is formed and how meaning is found. The exhibition then traveled to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and continues around the world. Sara Berman’s Closet, a lyrical memoir of her life from Belarus to New York by Maira and Alex Kalman will be available, published by HarperDesign.
A reading of Sara Berman’s Closet will begin at noon before the screenings, with a signing in between.
