Claes Oldenburg is known for his larger-than-life sculptures that are weighted to stay in place, never anchored. “Shuttlecocks” (1992) 19′ x 16′

Good call. I posted the title because of what I learned in my AP Art History class, but I can’t find any articles to confirm or deny either presumption. I’ll definitely have to ask someone the next time I’m at the Nelson and repost, but I think there’s a case to be made that the shuttlecocks are weighted, though, because [each shuttlecock weighs 5000 lbs, and is made out of aluminum.](http://www.bluffton.edu/~sullivanm/missouri/kansascity/nelsonatkins/oldenburg.html) Either way, I’m a huge fan of Oldenburg.
