Claes Oldenburg @ The Whitney

Finally back in NYC for a week of gallery and museum visits.
One highlight has been the Claes Oldenburg show at The Whitney Museum, an artist who in my opinion gets only a fraction of the recognition he deserves for being not only influential but also really,really good.

The show had a number of original objects from "The Store" and a full room of projected videos of early "Happenings".

The large moving sculpture, Ice Bag- Scale C was also on view with several related drawings.
