Mission Statement

The Calder Foundation is a nonprofit institution that was incorporated in 1987 to secure, classify, and maintain the Estate of Alexander Calder and to preserve the integrity of his life and work. The Calder Foundation is charged with several major goals, including organizing and maintaining the Calder archive, collaborating on publications and exhibitions on the artist, authenticating works attributed to Calder, and most importantly, preparing the catalogue raisonné, which currently documents over 22,000 objects.

Likewise, the Foundation's catalogue raisonné and archives are valuable resources for directors, curators, and scholars when conducting research or preparing Calder exhibitions.
