OK, it's not Monday. It's still Tuesday. Close enough.

Meet my friend Elizabeth Agro. Liz is the Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Decorative Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Liz gets to do all kinds of cool stuff at her job. A current exhibit that she curated was the jewelry of Alexander Calder.

Yes, that Alexander Calder.

Yes, jewelry.

Listen here to find out more.

I think I am less intrigued or surprised that Calder would dabble in jewelry making and more impressed that he set out doing this as gifts for his family and friends. Jewelry just means a lot more to me when it's handmade by someone I know and care about.
