A Beautiful Post: Mira Schor's Orbis Mundi

For your reading pleasure, Mira Schor's account of moving from her loft of 30 + years into her childhood home. It has the dense texture of one's own memories that may or may not include the vagaries of  New York real estate, artist parents and the legacy of immigration.

I associate the post with the book Lee Krasner: A Biography, by Gail Levin, which thoroughly contextualizes Krasner's artistic trajectory from her family's immigration to the US, early art school education in New York and the WPA years, which feel especially relevant now. Levin will speak about her book Sunday, May 15th in the Sackler Wing, 4th floor, Brooklyn Museum at 2PM.
