How many of you have an Alexander Calder in their city?

Asked by dpena2009 (218 points ) April 3rd, 2008 from iPhone

I live in Grand Rapids and we have one. We also named the whole area it’s in Calder Plaza. Our city’s flag also features the sculpture. I was just wondering because we watch a documentary on him in my art class.

I don’t know who that is, but I though you were trying to track some one down and even a score at first. :)

There is one in DeKalb, IL. On the campus of NIU. And there is the “Flamingo” in Chicago. Pretty neat stuff.

@ all: do I count? I am Gail Calder; my oldest step-son is Alexander Calder——-> descended from THE Alexander.(and originally the Campbells of Cawdor.)

I am interested but sad that @monsoon never heard of AC.

There’s a beautiful one hanging in the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. It’s right above the grand staircase – one of my favorite places in the whole museum…
