And the Blue Ribbon Goes to ... Anissa Mack - The New York Times

Around two dozen of her newest collagelike objects and sculptures inspired by a lifetime of fair-going are on view in “Junk Kaleidoscope,” a solo show at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum here, through April 22.

Though his furniture designs remain his best known work (much in the same way that Charles and Ray Eames – whom Bertoia met through the famed Cranbook Academy of Art – were known for their chairs above all else), Bertoia’s interest in the possibilities of sound became his greatest passion, manifesting in numerous “sounding sculptures” displayed at various locations throughout the US.

Miró, Calder and a Convergence of ‘Constellations’ - The New York Times
Joan Miró was a small, fastidious, taciturn Catalan. Alexander Calder was a big, rumpled, gregarious American. At first glance, they would appear to hail from distant planets. Yet once they met in Paris in 1928, they enjoyed an unusually close and mutually beneficial friendship that lasted until Calder’s death in 1976.
