Reflections on Calder at LACMA

Reflections on Calder at LACMA

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has a magnificent selection of outdoor sculpture, and one of the most enticing, is Alexander Calder‘s Three Quintains (“Hello Girls”), (1964), an amazing example of  his “stabiles“.

Installed in the reflective pool in the Director’s Roundtable Garden, these wonder of these remarkable works is amplified by their softly rippling reflections in the water.

These reflections enchant,  reflecting the ethereal yet whimsical wafting of movable parts through the space above.

Kinetic yes, but in such a peaceful, natural way that one feels part of their creator’s universe and the universe they reflect in the viewing.

Walking through the wafting air, by the rippling water,  amidst Calder’s gently moving creations may just help us to feel closer to our own creative force and a greater part of our own universe.

Let’s celebrate one of LA’s treasures, a movable feast for the eyes, soul and spirit.

  1. I hope to see it — and you, Deborah, when there in April!

  2. Hi again after a long while – any chance to get together when I’m there in early April? Hope the week of 4-10 or so.

    Best Barbara
