Organized by The Westmoreland’s Chief Curator Barbara L. Jones, The Art of Movement brings together the work of three fascinating artists, Alexander Calder (1898-1976), George Rickey (1907-2002), and Tim Prentice (b. 1930), all of whom are leading proponents of kinetic art. All three use repetitive abstract patterns, work with balance and counterweights, use no mechanical or electrical operating parts, and wait for the air to activate their work.
