Intelligence Sara Berman’s Closet

We visited a closet-sized space at The Metropolitan Museum of Art to see an exhibition called Sara Berman’s Closet. Mother of artist Maira Kalman, Sara Berman was a Jewish émigré from humble beginnings who traveled from Belarus to Palestine, finally settling in New York in the early 1950s. At age sixty, Sara decided to rid herself of an unhappy marriage and move into a small studio in Greenwich Village. There, she built and kept a closet of simple, all-white clothing, shoes, and accessories; no one is sure why. Beautifully and meticulously organized, the closet represents newfound independence that can be found at any age. Following her passing in 2004, the closet was recreated at Mmuseum by her grandson and then brought to The Met.
