koons at versailles

If you’re not familiar with American art star Jeff Koons, I’m sure the balloon animal at least rings a bell. Koons has been granted a solo show exhibiting in the gardins and interior of Versailles. Check out the New York Times for a slide show and notes on the exhibit.
(There’s also a beautiful photo of the exterior of the palace reflected in one of Koons’ metallic golden sculptures!)

Woah, his work looks so crazy in contrast to the traditional styling of Versailles! I love it. He had an exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts here in Columbus, Ohio on my campus at the Ohio State University. I’m fortunate and grateful for the Wex because it brings in such innovative new art. There’s a Warhol exhibition going on there right now!
