I learned about the new show at the Met, Calder's Jewelry, today in WSJ's article Body Sculpture Crafted by Calder by Lance Esplund. What's not interesting about a crazy mobile-making genius who couldn't not make crazy, mobile, movement-inspired jewelry and objects d'art (approximately 1,800 pieces in his lifetime)? Nothing. At the Met through March 1. See you there.
