See This: Rodin: Transforming Sculpture at the Peabody Essex Museum

Nothing was set in stone for Auguste Rodin.


Nothing was set in stone for Auguste Rodin, an artist who constantly embraced chance and experimentation. Get a peek into his creative process at the Peabody Essex Museum, where 175 bronze, plaster and marble works are making their U.S. debut in just-opened exhibit Rodin: Transforming Sculpture. Organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée Rodin in Paris, it features drawings as well as finished and in-process sculptures, including two versions of The Thinker. And you can watch limbs come to life when BoSoma Dance Company presents 101 days of performances in response to the sculptor’s master- pieces, which are on view through Sept. 5.
