If you’re in the Big Apple for the upcoming 4th of July weekend — you might want to catch the Jeff Koons Retrospective going on all summer long at The Whitney Museum of American Art.
Koons is the artist who’s famous for his huge balloon dog sculptures — but has some other provocative, non-canine-themed pieces as well. Of course I prefer his dog art. But I have to admit, the gigantic Play-Doh installation looks pretty cool! (The Guardian)
Who said balloon dogs are just for clowns? Pop-artist Jeff Koons’ Balloon Dog (Orange) sculpture — standing 12-feet high and made of stainless steel — sold last night at Christie’s in New York City for a whopping $58,405,000!
Just think how many balloons — or dog food that could buy! (THR)
