Famed American sculptor Alexander Calder has been gone for over 40 years, leaving his work to speak for him. But what if you could hear stories first-hand from 2 people who worked closely with him? You can do just that next Sunday in Hillsdale, NY.

The Casana T House on Route 23 will feature Jed Perl, famed art critic and noted biographer of Alexander Calder on Sunday, June 10th for a free lecture entitled "Calder in Conversation - Jed Perl and Stanley Cohen on Friendship with a Legend", which will be followed by a special dinner. Perl has recently completed a nation-wide book tour in conversation with Sandy Rower, Calder’s grandson. Cohen, who was a long-time friend, neighbor, and legal advisor of Calder will replace Rower for the event at the T House--which was founded by Cohen's partner Carrie Chen last September.

Together with Rower, Cohen created the biennial Calder Prize which is awarded to a young three-dimensional artist.

During the week of Perl’s lecture, an exhibit of Calder’s works including gouaches, a mobile and stable-mobile will be displayed. The program on Sunday, June 10th at 6 P.M. is free. A special dinner will follow at 7:30, at $30 per person. Only 40 people may attend dinner so RSVP ASAP.
