Jennifer Steinkamp

This is an excerpt of a talk given by Jennifer Steinkamp at Otis College.  I became aware of Jennifer's work after seeing the beautiful tree projection that she did for the Cleveland Clinic.

A new world record for Alexander Calder

Bidding reached record levels last Tuesday (May 9th, 2012) on several Alexander Calder pieces auctioned at Christie's.  

"Snow Flurry", selling at $ 10.4 million  dollars set a new record for an auction price on a Calder mobile.

"Snow Flurry" - Alexander Calder 

And an 8 ft tall stabile, "Lily of Force" (great name!), estimated to sell around $12 million at most, took in a record $18.6 million dollars - the highest sale ever recorded in an auction for a Calder work.

Here is a video showing "Lilly of Force" in all of its beauty:

Hanging Mobile at the Cleveland Clinic

I spotted this interesting hanging mobile at the Cleveland Clinic the other day while visiting a family member who recently had open-heart surgery.

 I searched for a sign giving the artist's name but couldn't find it, but fellow mobile maker Julie Frith thinks it is by  Arthur Bauman and I agree...thanks Julie!

 I really like the colors on this one and it fits nicely in this stairwell, but I wish the Clinic had contracted ME to do this mobile and not Mr. Bauman!  

The Clinic is an amazing place - wonderful people work there and the halls are filled with great art work.

Picture is from my cell phone - sorry about the quality.
