Often I sense the presence of my muse in museums. Yesterday, I was walking Stanford campus and stopped at the Cantor for lunch. There, in the vacant inner courtyard, I found the pink Q by Claes Oldenberg (actually “Soft inverted Q”). Of course, the sculpture is not soft at all; it is made from acrylic and cement and weighs 3,500 pounds.
Q was added to Stanford’s extensive collection of outdoor sculpture by American artists in 1989. It arrived with Richard Serra’s “Call me Ishmael”, which is made of steel and is even heavier than Q.
