One of my favorite recent Christmas presents is the set of vintage Pink Pig Salt and Pepper Shakers that I received from a neighbor. These little guys  are so adorable that I have not even been able to take then as far as the kitchen. Instead, they sit on my beside table, so that I can see them as soon as I wake up each morning and get my daily squee out of the way. Squee!

Just so nobody gets confused, the girl pig (with the red bow) has an S on her back for Salt, and the boy pig has P for Pepper! Helpful!

Don’t forget that next week, on February 5th, we will be celebrating Chinese New Year, ushering in the Year of The Pig! Yay!

Claes Oldenburg: Mouse Museum/Ray Gun Wing at MOMA

Claes Oldenburg, the legendary pop sculptor, has long been a collector of objects and  images. His studio shelves contain an immense variety of items that, since 1972, he has gathered during his daily travels, alongside experiments and prototypes for his sculptures. Mouse Museum and Ray Gun Wing — currently on exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art — evolved from the artist’s commitment to this practice of collection, storage and display.

Located in the MOMA’s center atrium area, the Mouse Museum is the structure in the above photo that is shaped like a Geometric Mouse (a recurring motif in Oldenburg’s drawings, prints and sculptures). The Ray Gun Wing, which was created in 1977, is shaped like a gun. I had a peek inside each of these tiny museums when I was at MOMA the other day, which was a treat.

The Ray Gun Wing, as you might’ve guessed, is filled with cases displaying various types of toy guns and pistols and various every day objects  — from soda can tabs to stones — shaped like guns and pistols. When I first walked into this wing, and saw all the different “prototypes” of toy guns, BB guns, ray guns, Nerf guns from the different eras – I instantly thought that my kid needs that nerf review, and snapped a few pictures for him on my phone. The  Mouse Museum is filled with little fantasy trinkets, toys, candles and small prototype models for some of Oldenburg’s sculptures. I didn’t take any pictures inside of the Ray Gun Wing, because  you weren’t really supposed to take any photos,  but I took quite a few inside the Mouse Museum, because, why not? I had just been to the Punk exhibit over at the Met and I was feeling a little rebellious.  Here are a few snaps of  some of the cool stuff I saw inside a tiny room shaped like a mouse head.
