Scent and Sensibility at The Contemporary Jewish Museum

Tarot cards, palm readings, crystal balls—if the otherwordly has always gotten you going, live out your fantasy at tomorrow night's FREE event as part of the Maira Kalman exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. 

Bay Area author Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) will enchant with his magical accordian while renowned perfumer Yosh Han follows your nose. Come with questions about love, money or creativity and schedule a one-on-one scent reading where Han will offer intuitive insight about your personality.

It's all part of the second in a series of MILTONs—conceptual spaces for whimsy developed by artist Maira Kalman whose solo exhibition Maira Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World) is currently on view.

Is it a bunch of hooey? Maybe. But escaping the day-to-day for a brief trip to wonderland sure sounds like a lot of fun to me. Thursday, 8/19, 5 - 8 p.m.; Contemporary Jewish Museum, 736 Mission St., 415-655-7800, thecjm.org
