When the husband-and-wife artist team, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, installed it in the museum’s Kansas City Sculpture Park in 1994, Shuttlecocks created quite a stir. Letters from those who loved its bright, fresh form and welcomed its challenge to the status quo appeared in local media along with articles, letters to the editor, editorial cartoons and news reports charging that it was Ònot artÓ and calling it a Ògiant waste.Ó
