Louisiana poster with the sculpture, As Long As The Sun Lasts, by the American artist, Alex Da Corte (b. 1980). Through the summer of 2022, the sculpture can be experienced on the Calder terrace in front of Louisiana's café.
Alexander Calder's three sculptures, which usually stand on the terrace, are among the most iconic works in the museum's park, but over the summer his red mobile Little Janey-Wayney is temporarily replaced by a new work by Alex Da Corte.
The large, colorful and humorous sculpture As Long as the Sun Lasts stands both as a preview of the artist Alex Da Corte's summer exhibition on Louisiana and as a significant "exclamation point" on an iconic Louisiana spot.
The Sommer sculpture is heavily inspired by Calder's work and combines his light, playful style with a solid footing, inspired by mass-produced build-it-yourself toys. Hovering in a crescent moon with a ladder sits a large, blue version of Big Bird, a beloved character from the American children's TV show Sesame Street.
