In partnership with The Met, MoMA and The Guggenheim, Maira Kalman explores essential questions through painting, publication and performance in this short film, Portraits in Creativity (NR, 18 min). With her characteristic humor, tender observations of our human foibles, and gorgeous sense of color, she asks, “Who are we? How are we documenting ourselves? Is this a dream? Are we in costume?”
