Alexander Calder, Calder's Circus, 1926-31


Sandy's Circus
A Story about Alexander Calder

There once was an artist named Alexander Calder.
Only he didn't call himself Alexander. And he didn't call the things he made art.
Borik Kulikov illustrationAlexander Calder is one of America's most important 20th century artists. In addition to his amazing mobiles and stabiles, which can be seen in public places all over the world, Sandy created a wonderful, whimsical circus out of found materials such as wire, cork, and paper. This is the story of that circus and how he set the art world on fire with his performances.
