Walking with Maira Kalman

Studio 360
The World
The artist and illustrator Maira Kalman has produced countless magazine covers, written a dozen books for children, and produced a great visual blog for the New York Times site. The first museum survey of Kalman's work has been traveling the country and it's up now at New York's Jewish Museum. Kalman gets many of her ideas from taking walks. Everywhere she goes – and she travels a lot – all kinds of unusual people and their hats and shoes and pets are constantly catching her eye. Kurt Andersen took Kalman for a stroll on an obscure old lane in Lower Manhattan: Nassau Street. (Originally aired: December 14, 2007)          Slideshow: Maira Kalman – 30 Years on the Hunt for Art
