Hung two fresh metal circle mobiles at a local cafe this morning. While installing them, I met someone who used to live in Wisconsin and now resides in the state of Washington. She mentioned purchasing several of my mobiles years ago that now hang in her home near the sea, including a large wire salmon that is right at home hanging in her atrium. First time we met. Feels good to know old mobiles are still hanging and enjoyed.
I went to the Chicago Museum of Modern Art last week to view an Alexander Calder exhibit. Amazing as always. Works of seven contemporary artists inspired by Calder were also shown. My conclusion - Calder stands alone as the master of mobiles.
