There is now an exciting opportunity to see two original Calder mobiles on display at the University of Oregon's Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.  These are displayed in the Focus Gallery until January 30, 2016.  And, from January 6th to February 12th entry into the JSMA is FREE to all visitors!  http://jsma.uoregon.edu/location-and-hours
