Maira's Magic: Various Illumiations at the ICA
In her first major survey Maira Kalman's Various Illumiations (Of A Crazy World) at The Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia exhibits works spanning thirty years of humor and joy from the New York based author, designer, and illustrator. With mediums ranging from embroidery to an installation of ladders and the artists' personal collections of "many tables of many things" observers are invited to peek into Maira's world. Maira Kalman: Various Illumiations (Of A Crazy World) runs now through June 6th. Image courtesy of the artist and Julie Saul Gallery.
