Claes Oldenburg often incorporates images from everyday life into his artwork. ''Claes Oldenburg: Strange Eggs'' at The Menil Collection features 18 collages the Swedish-born American artist completed at an important juncture in his career, when he moved from New York City to Chicago in 1956. Fragments of images from newspapers and magazines — a horse’s leg, a tree branch, a piece of pie — are incorporated into experimental collages that hinted at Oldenburg’s provocative later work.
Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Starts: Sept. 20. Continues through Feb. 3, 2012
