Claus Oldenburg Wedding Cake Slice

When I saw the piece of cake on the Poster for the Art of Food Show at JSMA in Portland, Oregon, I knew instantly what it was. This work by Claus Oldenburg played prominently into a Texas Art story that played out in the 1960s at the Museum for the Contemporary Arts in Dallas. I wrote about it here in 2014. Visiting the show, the artwork brought the story to life. I looked carefully for signs of a repair, without luck.
