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.

Stunning! Kudos to curator Elizabeth Agro and to PMA for installing such a gorgeous show.

I arrived here with my high school as an art trip. In our class we are going to try and recreate Calders pieces. I was truly inspired by his rings and i am going to try and recreate his 1930 Wedding Ring piece as a tribute.thank youby the way. Mrs. Shultz is the best art teacher ever!!!!!

The pieces by Calder are inspirational. I looked at the pieces and wanted to cry. I wish I could make such amazing jewelry. I hope to someday be as talented as that man is. Thank you very much. Have a good day.

What an exciting and interesting display of Calder's lesser known work. It was enjoyable and fascinating. Thank you for presenting it in this fabulous new venue.

I heard a review of this show on NPR (I think). I live in Northern Virginia and drove up here today to see this show. It took my breath away. Thank you. I will dream of this.

A stunning show. Please let out-of-towners know it's at Perelman, you don't have to climb the Rocky steps, you don't have to wait in long lines at main bldg., you don't have to pay $14, and there is a shuttle bus: A sign outside the main entrance would be helpful, PMA. L5S8

What can be done with some wire, a hammer, an anvil and artistic vision! Simple, and gorgeous. What an inspiration.

Calder was the embodiment of imagination taking form in three dimensions. His jewelry is a pleasure to see and parallels his other work beautifully. Thank you for presenting this exhibition.

I bought some attractive jewelry from the shop last month. I sent one of the Tiffany jewelry to my friend as a gift, she likes that very much and could not believe it was only $10.

Enjoyed the sense of play and love of nature. There appears to be a strong influence from African culture.His use of everyday found materials is inspirational.Glad that I made the effort to come.
