About Alexander Calder (1898, Lawnton, PA – 1976, New York, NY):
Alexander Calder’s bold and playful exploration of shape, color, sound and movement are apparent in his extensive body of work, including everything from wire sculpture, jewelry and mobiles to paintings, stage sets and monumental sculpture. Several works by Calder from the Museum’s permanent collection are on view in Seeing America, on the Second Floor.
