"Dedicated to Coney Island" by Tom Duncan

My favorite art critic, Jerry Saltz, went to the Armory Show and one of the pieces he liked caught my eye: Dedicated to Coney Island by Tom Duncan. Jerry describes this colorful and dynamic diorama as "a homegrown modern version of Calder's Circus."

You can take a tour of Dedicated to Coney Island, Duncan's 15-years-in-the-making autobiographical work, in the video below.

Alexander Calder's Circus (part 1), made from wire, corks, fabric scraps, whatever was handy. Calder's inner child would not be denied, thank goodness.
