Conserving Calder's Circus -The Whitney Museum

A friend and fellow artist, Julie Jenkins, made me aware of this great video clip from the Whitney Museum on Alexander Calder's Circus.  It's an amazing, incredible piece of performance art.  In these days where we fling through hundreds of images on Pinterest and Instagram at the speed of light, I'm hoping some of you will be able to slow down enough (it's 13 min.) to enjoy both the original unique and fantastic imagination of Calder and also the care and love of the conservators as they preserve this man's work, mind, and imagination.  Truly amazing!  Long live ART,  I love you in all your forms!!
