"I’m studying to be a librarian."
"What’s the sexiest part about being a librarian?"
"I’d say the width of our knowledge. The rest of academia seems to have a rather specific focal point, whereas librarians need to know enough to serve as a guide for researchers of every discipline."

Museum Monday: In collaboration with the Calder Foundation, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has organized the major retrospective of Alexander Calder, Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic. Highlighting many of his most iconic kinetic sculptures - including stabiles and mobiles fashioned from wire and metal - Calder and Abstraction is on view at LACMA through July 27, 2014. 
Opening this Wednesday, April 16, is Alexander Calder: The Art of Invention, our inaugural exhibition at Pace Menlo Park, a pop-up gallery space at 300 El Camino Real in Menlo Park, California. On display through May 13, the exhibition will feature monumental stabiles, bronzes, standing and hanging mobiles, colorful gouaches, and wearable jewelry.

"I’m always annoyed about why black people have to bear the brunt of everybody else’s contempt. If we are not totally understanding and smiling, suddenly we’re demons."

And that completes the series. It hasn’t hit me yet, mostly due to the fact that it’s three in the morning. I suspect it will hit once everything is framed and up for the show. You can view the completed series here, and/or wait until May 1st to view them all in person. Many thanks to everyone for hanging in there with me. This series has been a labor of love and I am so grateful to my brothers for being the inspiration for this project. There aren’t sincerely sufficient words to describe how much I adore them; I could only express it all through these drawings and hope that they understand.
