We at CCA are crazy about Claes Oldenburg, so we were particularly excited to hear about MoMA’s exhibition, Claes Oldenburg: The Street and The Store.
Oldenburg is known for his depictions of everyday objects, often as sculptures. This exhibition looks at the beginning of his career, when he began to create the food sculptures he is so well-known for today. The Street is comprised of objects made from cardboard, burlap, and newspaper. The Store is made up of brightly painted sculptures and reliefs.
The exhibition, which runs through August 5th, is an excellent opportunity for children to imagine everyday objects in a new light. How would you build your own food sculpture? Would the hamburger be blue or green? What would you use?
