Elemental Calder on Exhibit at SFMOMA
Now through June 28
Alexander Calder (American, 1898–1976), one of my favorite artists who revolutionized sculpture by inviting unseen forces of the natural world to participate in his art.
The works in this exhibition manifest the ways the elements – including he movement of the sea and the blowing of the wind – provided both subject matter and inspiration for many of Calder’s mobiles, which I am sure you have seen these spectacular and playfully enriching sculptures located in the parks, squares and museums all over the world.
Absolutely a must see exhibit now on view at SFMOMA, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Bring the youngsters to enjoy, learn and be fascinated.
