  • 20. The Giant Rubber Stamp was created by Claes Oldenburg. The 28 feet tall by 48 feet wide stamp was commissioned by the Amoco Oil Company in 1985. It was intended to be displayed in Amoco's lobby but ended up in storage in Indiana for seven years. In 1991, it was donated to Cleveland.
  • 21. The word free has several meanings. In this case free was designed to parallel the freedom of slaves but also -- because the stamp pressed down on the word free -- that many today still are not free."
