ALEXANDER CALDER

Born in Pennsylvania,he was the third generation of successful sculptors. From when he was a small boy, he was always making “stuff”; toys, utensils, and objects out of bits of string, wire, buttons, cloth, wood and tin. He always had a sense of whimsy about his objects and invented the “Mobile”; a way to compose colorful shapes, and fine lines moving in a constantly changing arrangement. He is also known for creat- ing and performing his own circus. Join us for a whimsical look into his world.
