if you happened to have googled anything at all yesterday, you might have seen their homage to alexander calder's birthday, replacing the google logo with a calder inspired mobile. his mobiles are probably what he is best know for, but his enormous sculptures are equally amazing, there are at least two here in downtown chicago, flamingo being the largest and best know at federal plaza. braniff also commissioned serveral planes for the 76 bicentennial, like the one above.
the calder foundation has lots of great pics http://www.calder.org/
