Paris is where art comes to life!
The famous artist, Alexander Calder (Sandy), loved building things as a kid, but he never thought he would become an artist.
This is SOOOO cool!
After being inspired by a "fiery red sunrise", Sandy new he was destined to be an artist. He began by sketching images of the Barnum & Bailey Circus.
That next year, Sandy traveled to Paris with a pair of pliers and a roll of wire. Periodically, he would stop and make whatever he saw by bending and curling the wire.
He got so good at manipulating that wire that he created and conducted his own wire circus. People loved it and traveled hundreds of miles to see his work.
And that is how Alexander Calder became a famous artist.
