3-WAY PLUG

This enormous three-way electrical plug
lies partially buried in the ground,
in front of the St. Louis Art Museum.

American artist, Claes Oldenburg (born Sweden),
created and installed the sculpture himself
in this location in 1971,
noting the "arching lines and recessed spaces
complemented the classical design
of the museum building."

Oldenburg produces monumental sculptures
of everyday consumer objects.

  1. Buena toma, una escultura sorprendente. Aquí se le llama vulgarmente "ladrón" (Thief)
