Tour the Calder Exhibit with the BSLUGS

On Sunday, November 9 at 3 p.m. we've arranged to have a docent-led tour of the exhibit, “Calder and Abstraction: From AvantGarde to Iconic” at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass.

Alexander Calder's abstract works revolutionized modern sculpture and made him one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century. In collaboration with the Calder Foundation, this exhibition brings together 40 of the artist's mobiles (kinetic metal works) and stabiles (dynamic monumental sculptures) to explore how Alexander Calder introduced the visual vocabulary of the French Surrealists into the American vernacular -PEM website.

We'll meet in the museum lobby at 2:45 p.m. Tickets are $18 each. (Unfortunately you can't use any passes or memberships to get in for less.)  After the tour, join us as we head on over to O’Neill’s Irish Pub & Restaurant (120 Washington Street, Salem, MA 01970-3545) to enjoy live Irish music.

To reserve your space for the Calder Exhibit tour, please RSVP by Monday, Nov. 3 on the B-SLUGS Facebook page or email beatapana AT gmail DOT com.
