520    "In 1985, the Sohio oil company commissioned Claes 
       Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen to design and construct a
       large outdoor sculpture for its new corporate headquarters
       in Cleveland, Ohio. The result was Free Stamp, a bold and 
       distinctive installation that captured both a Pop Art 
       sensibility and a connection to the city's industrial 
       past. Sohio executives approved the design, and work was 
       already underway, when British Petroleum acquired the 
       company. The new owners quickly decided that the sculpture
       was "inappropriate" for their building and attempted to 
       rid themselves of Free Stamp by donating it to the city of
       Cleveland--a gift that the city initially had no desire to
       accept. After much debate and public protest, the 
       sculpture found a home in Willard Park, where it stands 
       today. This is the first study of any sculpture by 
       Oldenburg and van Bruggen to examine the genesis of their 
       art from conception to installation. Edward J. Olszewski 
       has put together a fascinating narrative based on 
       interviews with the artists, archival material from city 
       records, and in-house corporate memoranda, as well as 
       letters to the editor and political cartoons. He traces 
       the development of the sculpture from the artists' first 
       sketches and models to the installation of the completed 
       work in its urban environment"--|cProvided by publisher.
