The artistic team of Claes Oldenburg (b. 1929) and Coosje van Bruggen (1942-2009) has to date executed more than forty large-scale projects, which have been sited in various urban surroundings in Europe, Asia and the United States. The now-iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry (1985-1988) is the centerpiece of Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, one of the Twin Cities’ most beloved cultural destinations. This sketchbook drawing, entitled Apple Core Gazebo, was created as a study for a garden sculpture.
