NYC cont'd (Koons on the Roof)

A special installation of three sculptures by American Artist
Jeff Koons whose previous work has included a 43 foot tall topiary sculpture of a West Highland Terrier. I saw an exhibition of his work many years ago in a museum in Bregenz, Austria, and was really impressed by the visual impact. You'd have to see the balloon style sculptures in the flesh to believe just how reflective they are.

This installation is in a roof garden in New York City (
The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden), which has an impressive view of Central Park and the Manhatten skyline. I would love to see that skyline reflected on these sculptures. The installation will be open until October 26th (weather permitting).
