The Brooklyn Museum recently unveiled a new exhibit that towers over guests in the lobby. In Along the Way, Brooklyn artist and toy designer KAWS sculpted this 6-ton, 18-foot tall Mickey Mouse pair out of milled wooden planks.
ALONG THE WAY, KAWS's colossal eighteen-foot-high wood sculpture, greets visitors in our Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavilion and Lobby. Portraying a pair of gigantic figures with their heads lowered and with one arm around each other in a gentle embrace, the sculpture alludes to familiar childhood toys and cartoon characters while at the same time transforming their identities with a radical shift in scale, presenting them as monumental cultural presences.
You can view the sculpture at the Brooklyn Museum up until December 6th.
