Fletcher Benton: The Artist's Studio explores the unique attitudes and methods that Benton, a world-renowned kinetic and constructivist sculptor, applies to his work. This experiential and interactive exhibition looks at the inspirations, processes, toys, and tools that Benton uses to create his art. Conceived by Benton himself, it provides a rare opportunity to see the studio—a typically private space—through the artist's eyes.

Drawing from the collections of the de Saisset Museum and the Fletcher Benton Studio, Fletcher Benton: In Motion features a selection of the artist's kinetic works, made during the 1960s and 1970s. Among his best-known pieces, the kinetic works utilize a formal vocabulary—his attention to shape, color, and line reflect his artistic beginnings as a painter—and speak to his ongoing interest in time and movement
