Searching for Alexander Calder in Kansas City, MO

Calder in Kansas City @KRenaeP

Alexander Calder was an American sculptor and engineer known his innovative modern sculptures. I fell in love with his sculpture, Flamingo, when I searched for Picasso and Miro sculptures in Chicago.

When I visited Kansas City, MO, I saw a sculpture that reminded me of the Flamingo. I looked it up and learned that Calder had three pieces in Kansas City. My friend* agreed to go on a search for Calder with me.
