Art & Design

The lovely Leanna ReneeHieber and I returned to the Metropolitan Museum of Art this past Sunday to finish seeing the rest of the J.M.W. Turner exihibit and to continue our plans for world domination. This took place on the rooftop of the Met while sipping fruity cocktails, where artist Jeff Koons has an interesting installation. This balloon dog is actually from a similar installation at Versailles this summer. The one at the Met is gold but I kind of like the fuschia dog better.

You can see the rest of the installation here. Apparently the French don't know what to make of Koons invading the splendor that is Versailles with his balloon dogs and naked breasts. Personally I think that Marie Antoinette would have loved it!
