It's been nearly 60 years since the last museum show of artist Alexander Calder was on view in the Boston area, even though he had a studio right here in New England. The drought is over now though, thanks to a show at the Peabody Essex Museum. Run to it, says WGBH arts editor Jared Bowen, and then, take your time.
