Calder's Big Fish
February 21 • 1:00p–3:00p

Art School Studios

A wizard with wire, Alexander Calder created mobiles, portraits, jewelry, and even toys. Throughout his life, Calder was inspired by and used the solar system and nature as recurring themes in his artwork. His signature use of primary colors and balanced simple shapes in motion make his mobiles highly recognizable feats of engineering. Calder's fish mobiles glide and sparkle in space catching light and casting shadows. Using wire and found objects, Youth Members will draw, design and create a big fish of their own.

Free to Youth Members or become a Youth Member for $20 (includes three events per year).
