Members' Opening of Sara Berman's Closet

Join the National Museum of American Jewish History Thursday, April 4, from 6-8pm for the opening reception of Sara Berman's Closet. See the exhibition before it opens to the public, hear from exhibition creators Maira Kalman and Alex Kalman, and enjoy live music and refreshments.

Sara Berman's daughter, celebrated artist Maira Kalman, and grandson, curator Alex Kalman, have recreated Sara's fastidiously organized closet outside the Museum on Independence Mall, where it becomes a monument to her independence, exploring how fashion, feminism, art, immigration, and history come together in a burst of joy. The exhibition will be on view through Labor Day.

Free for NMAJH Members. RSVP to Caroline Seibel at or call 215.923.3811 x1109.
