Watch Maira Kalman's TED Talk Before Next Weekend's Frist Center Opening

Posted By on Fri, May 30, 2014 at 8:15 AM

As both writers and arts enthusiasts, the Scene edit staff has been eagerly awaiting Maira Kalman's The Elements of Style exhibition that opens at the Frist on June 6. The paintings on paper originally illustrated Kalman's 2005 update to the slim Strunk & White volume on writing well, but they stand on their own as witty poignant ruminations on storytelling.

Look for a Q&A with Kalman in next week's Scene, but in the meantime you can watch the above TED Talk The Illustrated Woman, where Kalman discusses simplicity, The Elements of Style, and how she made a career out of daydreaming.
