Clothespin by Claes Oldenburg, Virginia Museum of Art, Richmond, Virginia

This 10 foot sculpture by Pop Artist, Claes Oldenburg, is in the lobby of the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in Richmond.  I couldn't find much info on it, although I recognized it immediately from college art history classes.  I'm reasonably sure it is not the original one--it's too small for that, only 10- feet.  Oldenburg is still alive although in his 80's, I believe.

I was in Richmond this spring for a painting workshop with Ann Blair Brown and visited the museum before leaving for home the last day.  By the way, it was an excellent workshop.
