Did you know?

After moving to New York City in 1980, McCallum served as a studio assistant to Al Held, an artist also represented in the CMA’s collection.


After earning studio art degrees from Kent State University, McCallum launched his career creating large abstractions with complex layers of densely packed, razor-sharp shapes in raucous color.Evoking the energy of a metropolis, City Skip brims with beams, channels, grids, and wiry lines. The composition is further animated by accents of metallic paint.
