Calder Jewelry
8 December 2008–1 March 2009The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Originated from the Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, Florida.

Curated by Mark Rosenthal and Alexander S. C. Rower, Calder Jewelry was the first museum presentation dedicated solely to the artist’s extensive output of inventive jewelry. During his lifetime, Calder produced countless unique pieces of brass, silver, and gold body ornaments, often embellished with found objects such as beach glass, ceramic shards, and wood. The exhibition featured necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches, and tiaras, many of which were made as personal gifts for the artist’s family and friends.
