Calder: In Motion at Seattle Art Museum

It was inspiring to see the epic “Calder: In Motion” The Shirley Family Collection at SAM. It’s up until August 4, 2024. How lucky for us in the PNW that SAM is the recipient of this wonderful collection.

“This is the first comprehensive public display of more than 45 important works–enormous and tiny–representing every decade of Calder’s career from the 1920s through 70s, including iconic mobiles, stabiles, wire sculptures, a constellation, works on paper, and a significant oil painting, as well as lithographs and related ephemera.”

I shared a video on Instagram of Little Yellow Panel it’s “in motion” and mesmerizing.
