  • “I wanted to make a symbol of the active Church, a walking or 'rockin' cross, which also happens to be a 'J,' a birthday candle and a newspaper collage of the world around the church. Selected activities of the Judson over the years are typed on my 1926 typewriter and scattered like street signs over the 'newspaper cross.' There's also a personal reference to the work in outlined newspaper collage I was doing when I showed and performed at the Judson Gallery in 1959-1960.” —Claes Oldenburg
