"Claes Oldenburg: Drawings, 1959-1977" and "Claes Oldenburg With Coosje van Bruggen: Drawings, 1992-1998": Claes Oldenburg's scrappy love of everyday stuff celebrates the magical mysteries of little lives lived in big cities, where homey comforts disappear in a sea of anonymity, desperation lurks in the shadows and otherwise forgettable incidents are loaded with pathos that never makes the headlines. At Pepperdine, a survey of profoundly likable drawings traces Oldenburg's love affair with products not ordinarily cherished for their loveliness.

-- David Pagel

Ends Sunday at the Weisman Museum of Art, Pepperdine University, 24255 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu.
