Foto Friday: Big Sweep

I planned to attend a local museum Thursday and take some “new” pictures for this week’s Foto Friday, but life got in the way. Fortunately, I have a stockpile of photos from previous occasions. I took this picture when Da Hype 1 and I visited Denver in 2012.

"Big Sweep," Denver, Colorado, 2006

“Big Sweep,” Denver, Colorado, by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen (2006)

Artists Claes Oldenburg (1929-) and Coosje van Bruggen (1942-2009) are known for their outdoor sculptures in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Their art projects are often large-scale reproductions of ordinary objects. This giant sculpture of a broom and dustpan, called “Big Sweep,” is outside the Denver Art Museum and is over 31 feet high and 25 feet wide.
