Join Michael Darling, SAMís Jon & Mary Shirley Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, in the studio as he discusses Alexander Calder: A Balancing Act. From miniature maquettes, works on paper and jewelry to monumental sculptures and one of the artistís largest mobiles, this exhibition offers viewers a sense of the range of Alexander Calderís work from 1927 through the mid-1970s. More than forty original works of art—many of them from Jon and Mary Shirley's extensive collection, which is rarely seen by the public—trace the development and amazing creativity of this American master sculptor.
