guest artist: MAIRA KALMAN !
last night, jeanine + i went to the opening of maira kalman's show at the contemporary jewish museum. it was BREATHTAKING seeing her books come to life, i think my heart actually skipped a beat. i snapped this ONE blurry photo before quickly being told N O T to take pictures! damn. we even got to meet maira (i actually met her 18 years ago and she looks exactly the same). she is small, funny and quick witted, just like her work. the show is up for 2 months and i will be visiting it a LOT.
jeanine and i were somewhat star-struck, like 2 teenage girls. we came bearing gifts. jeanine gave her a silver bracelet . . . and i gave her a bag of rocks (how embarressing).
