Plantoir, Blue by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen

Aug 16Sep 15Channel GardensFree and open to the public

Find Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen's Plantoir, Blue at the Fifth Avenue entrance to the Channel Gardens at Rockefeller Center. The sculpture is on display from March 18th to May 6th.

Husband-and-wife team Oldenburg and van Bruggen are celebrated for their large-scale sculptures of ordinary objects that take pleasure in the forms found in everyday life. Delving into the fruit bowl, the toolshed and the toybox for familiar shapes and colors, the artists enlarged and animated their selected objects, fixing them in moments of energetic motion. Plantoir is a humble gardening tool that stands upright, its point submerged in the ground as if it had just fallen out of the sky.
