themuseumofmodernart Happy birthday to Claes Oldenburg! We're sending him a piece of his own "Floor Cake," one of his signature "soft sculptures." Oldenburg created this sculpture, along with "Floor Burger" and "Floor Cone," for the 1962 installation of The Store at the Green Gallery in Manhattan. "If you're going to make sculptures out of real things around you," Oldenburg said, "then why not try to make them soft so that you could push them around, and they'll change shape." [Claes Oldenburg. "Floor Cake." 1962. Synthetic polymer paint and latex on canvas filled with foam rubber and cardboard boxes, 58 3/8" x 9' 6 1/4" x 58 3/8" (148.2 x 290.2 x 148.2 cm). The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gift of Philip Johnson. 2015 Claes Oldenburg] 2d

themuseumofmodernart Happy birthday to Barbara Kruger! Kruger began her career in the late 1970s as a graphic designer and quickly gained recognition in the art world for her signature style of photo-based images overlaid with blocks of text in black, white, and red. The visual strategies she borrowed from the mass media later returned to their sources on covers she created for magazines such as Newsweek, Esquire, and, here, Ms. magazine. [Barbara Kruger. "Rage + Women = Power, cover for Ms. magazine." January/February 1992. Photolithograph, composition and sheet: 10 3/4 x 8 3/8" (27.4 x 21.3 cm). Published by Lang Communications, New York. Mass produced. The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Purchase. 2015 Barbara Kruger]​ #BarbaraKruger 4d

themuseumofmodernart Robert Motherwell, born today in 1915, described his working process as follows: "I begin painting with a series of mistakes. The painting comes out of the correction of mistakes by feeling. I begin with shapes and colors, which are not related internally nor to the external world; I work without images.” [Robert Motherwell. "Western Air." 1946-47. Oil and sand on canvas, 6' x 54" (182.9 x 137.2 cm). The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Purchase (by exchange)] 6d

themuseumofmodernart Happy birthday to Cindy Sherman! Here's what Eva Respini, curator of MoMA's 2012 Sherman retrospective, had to say about the artist's "Untitled Film Stills" series: "The success of this body of work is in the seemingly endless variation of female types that Sherman has presented to us: the girl on the run, the bombshell, the bored housewife, the vamp. Sherman has mined these stereotypes to great effect and presented us with a variety of characters that are familiar, but also spark our own narrative." [Cindy Sherman. "Untitled Film Still #31." 1979. Gelatin silver print, 7 9/16 x 9 7/16" (19.2 x 24 cm). The Museum of Modern Art, New York. 2015 Cindy Sherman] #CindySherman 2w
