Grand Intuitions: Calder’s Monumental Sculpture
21 May 2001–15 November 2003Storm King Art Center, Mountainville, New York

In Grand Intuitions: Calder’s Monumental Sculpture, an unprecedented gathering of eighteen monumentally scaled sculptures by Calder rose from the fields and hillsides of Storm King Art Center. Curated by Alexander S. C. Rower, it was by far the largest exhibition ever assembled of these large-scale, outdoor works, on which the artist concentrated his energies during the last phase of his career.
