A temporary outdoor monument to freedom and independence

How fashion, feminism, art, immigration, and history come together in a burst of joy

SBC Mmuseumm
We can't wait to open our newest special exhibition Sara Berman’s Closet next month. An installation of one immigrant woman’s belongings as re-created by Sara’s daughter and grandson – the acclaimed artist and writer Maira Kalman and designer and curator Alex Kalman – the project will feature the Museum’s first-ever public art installation on its Kimmel Plaza, on the corner of 5th and Market Streets. An accompanying art exhibition will continue in the Museum’s special exhibition gallery, featuring new paintings by Maira Kalman and new sculptures by Alex Kalman and will include interventions throughout the core exhibition, as well as in-person appearances by the Kalmans throughout the run.

Sara Berman’s Closet will be on view April 5 through September 2, 2019. Learn more about the exhibition and special programs at
