Ground Level

Relaxed mornings are an opportunity for visitors with autism, sensory sensitivities or disability to have a quieter Gallery experience, with fewer people and reduced noise.

American artist Alexander Calder is well known for his invention of the mobile and introducing movement into art. He was born into a family of artists. After school, Calder studied engineering but soon realised that he really wanted to be an artist. He attended art classes and moved to Paris where he worked and made friends with artists, musicians and writers. From the start Calder was fascinated with movement: he sketched animals in action at the zoo and began including moveable parts in his sculptures.

Now it’s your turn to be creative at Alexander Calder: Workshop for Kids – construct a sculpture of an animal and build a sculpture for your city at Creation Zone.
