Michael Darling, Jon & Mary Shirley Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, discusses Alexander Calder: A Balancing Act, showing the range of the artist's work from 1927 through the mid-70s, including miniature maquettes, works on paper, jewelry and monumental sculptures and mobiles. Many of the items are from private collections and have been rarely viewed by the public.
