Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Read the thoughts and impressions left by others during the run of the Calder Jewelry exhibition.

It was my pleasure to present Alexander Calder's jewelry to you. An exhibition such as this takes many months of preparation. You have to learn so much in such a short period of time. After the exhibition opened, I gave many tours and was asked many interesting questions. Reading your comments and questions online provided me with even further insights. This gave me the opportunity to learn more, but more importantly to raise more questions! That is the journey of a curator, in a nutshell.

Thank you for all the terrific feedback, questions, and comments. I'm glad we initiated this new way of interacting with our public; it has opened a 21st century channel of communication to our art historical world. Thank you for being a part of it. I look forward to future opportunities to continue our dialogue.

The book really does not do the exhibition justice... realizing both scale and volume in person brings life to Calder's work.The exhibition was amazing, and opened me up to the capabilities of cold forging.

Really shows how great art can be made out of any material you can find - with just a little imagination. Fabulous!

The jewelery here is very impressive - to think so much could be made out of metals we would not give a second thought to, makes it more interesting!!
