"In 2011 I was invited by the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City to curate an exhibit based on their collection. Like a shopper in some great, mad department store that housed many centuries' worth of objects, I browsed and inspected their archives for a year or so. The pieces that I chose were based on one thing only-- a gasp of delight."--Introduction.
"For this exhibition, author, artist, and designer Maira Kalman fills the former first-floor Drawing Room of the Carnegie Mansion, with 40 objects from Cooper Hewitt, the National Museum of American History, and her personal collection to suggest the journey of a life story, from birth through death"--Museum's website.
