Installed in a staircase at the Phillips are three works by Alexander Calder from the museum’s collection:
(c. 1950), Red Polygons (1939), and Hollow Egg (1951). In this month’s Only, Only Bird ArtGrams, we’re featuring your creative shots of all three.

There are plenty of mesmerizing works on view at the Phillips, but for this month’s
ArtGrams, we’re highlighting photos from visitors who looked beyond the canvas.
