Don’t miss the world premiere of Gael Towey’s latest short film, Maira Kalman: My Favorite Things. The film profiles renowned visual storyteller Maira Kalman as she curates Maira Kalman Selects, one of our ten inaugural exhibitions.

On the occasion of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, the film will delight you with the story of his pocket watch—one of the highlights of Kalman’s exhibition. Not only is this treasure on view, but after 150 years it was restored and made to tick again.

After the film screening, join Towey and Kalman for what promises to be an inspiring panel discussion. The evening will conclude with Kalman signing copies of her latest books, My Favorite Things and Ah– Ha to Zig–Zag.

Produced in association with Smithsonian Channel.

Maira Kalman Selects is made possible by the Marks Family Foundation Endowment Fund.
