Useful Links

Please take time to visit this link to Alexander Calder. This innovative painter and sculptor of modern art which often floats in space, is credited with inventing the mobile, something we deem almost ordinary today. His are definitely not ordinary. Click on one of the options on his home page to view his many works.

His works may be seen in person at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago July 28, 2007- April 2008. "This annual exhibition includes examples of Calder’s mobiles, stabiles, drawings, and paintings made from 1927 to 1968. Highlights from the show include the whimsical stabile Bird, constructed of coffee cans and tin to form a playful creature and Snow Flakes and Red Stop mobile resembling a gentle snow flurry."
