I remember seeing my first Alexander Calder exhibit in Portland Oregon many years ago. I love his sculptures and mobiles. There is so much color and movement you want to reach out and touch them. I did not realize until recently that he made jewelry too, very striking work. To find out more about Calder and his work go to www.calder.org.
If you are teaching art here is a wonderful idea for making your own Calder mobile from Salamander Art.
