"To an engineer, good enough means perfect. With an artist, there's no such thing as perfect." So said Alexander Calder, who would know: He earned a mechanical engineering degree before creating his famous kinetic sculptures. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic displays nearly 50 of Calder's delicate, early-career "mobiles" and subsequent larger "stabiles," such as 43-foot La Grande Vitesse made with sheet metal, bolts, and paint.
