Caterpillar - Norman Carlberg

We just learned about the famous American sculpture Stegosaurus by Jim Gary.

Another famous American work of art is Caterpillar by Norman Carlberg, made in Baltimore Maryland in 1976.

Carlberg was born in 1928 in Minnesota, and went to art school in Minnesota and at Yale.

He was famous for a kind of art called Modular Constructivism, which meant he used the same shape over in different patterns to make a sculpture.
