My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art.
This week, SAM offers a tour of Alexander Calder: A Balancing Act with Kris Anderson. Anderson is currently the director of the Jacob Lawrence Gallery at the University of Washington and is finishing his PhD in art history. A former artist and performer, he brings pithy insights and a humorous twist to the presentation of art that helps to demystify it and make it accessible for museum visitors of all experience levels. This week he looks at how Calder explored alternate dimensions of space and motion.
Free with museum admission. Tour meets at the entrance of Alexander Calder: A Balancing Act.
