We blogged last July when friends Alexander Calder and Joan Miró appeared along our spiral staircase, and now they’re back! But this time, the pairing includes Calder’s 1948 Untitled standing mobile, one I haven’t seen in person before. It’s a delightful and delicate discovery as one rounds the stairs to the second floor of the Goh Annex.
