  1. CCAC: Mobiles and Stabiles - This exhibit explores sculptures capable of being moved by air currents, taking advantage of the principle of equilibrium and suspension, and sculptures that suggest movement. The terms, Mobiles and Stabiles, were coined by Marcel Duchamp in 1931 to describe the early works of Alexander Calder, who established this art form prolifically until his death in 1976. This show focuses on the interpretation of this art form by two noted Carroll County artists, Charlie Maiorana and Thomas Sterner, who have created entirely new pieces specifically for this exhibit.
