Click to enlarge photo of Grande Disco by Arnaldo Pomodoro Since the mid-1970s, Pomodoro has continued to gain renown for his unique engagement with fundamental geometric shapes, notably the column, cube, pyramid, sphere, and disc. His massive architectonic forms suggest a continual process of self-destruction and regeneration. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions at major museums.

His works in this mode, from miniature to monumental, are called mobiles (suspended moving sculptures), standing mobiles (anchored moving sculptures) and stabiles (stationary constructions). Calder's abstract works are characteristically direct, spare, buoyant, colorful and finely crafted.

Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens, offering a world acclaimed sculpture collection, is beautifully situated on the immaculately tended gardens on the grounds of PepsiCo Headquarters. The garden was designed by Russell Page. The Sculpture Gardens include works by Alexander Calder, Joan Mirů, Alberto Giacometti, Henry Moore, George Segal, Jean Dubuffet, Auguste Rodin and Max Ernst.

The Sculpture Gardens is a collection of 45 sculptures by some of the best-known artists of the 20th century. Capricorn, Max Ernstís largest freestanding sculpture is among the inspiring works. The grounds themselves are 168-acres of green lawns, trees, ponds, fountains, and landscaped gardens with a topiary, well-tended hedges, flower beds and water-lily ponds. These spectacular grounds were conceived as an integration of architecture, landscape, and sculpture. "It is a landscape exhibiting superior thought and attention, a thorough knowledge of plants, a respect for what has come before, and a working effort to remain true to a vision."
