The other day I was at the Denver Art Musuem to renew my membership, and I happened upon this scene of Life Imitating Art. And in such close proximity! The creators of the 31 foot tall sculpture BIG SWEEP, Claes Oldenburg (he of soft sculpture pop art fame) and Coosje Van Bruggen had been working on the theme, 'The Dustbin of History' that became an inspiration for the piece. So I thought it fitting to present it here as we bid adieu to 2016. For the full comments by the artists on the piece, click: http://oldenburgvanbruggen.com/largescaleprojects/bigsweep.htm
