Balloon Dog — 10 feet tall

There is a wonderful new sculpture exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The sculptures are by Jeff Koons, and as a dog they probably wouldn’t let me in. But I got to see a great photo of what is surely one of the most exciting pieces. Here it is (click on image to see it large):

It is made of stainless steel and is 10 feet tall! Boy, I wish I could see it for real. Click the source above to read the New York Times review of the show.   The show will be on the rooftop at the Met, April 22, 2008–October 26, 2008 (weather permitting).

That’s all the dog art here for today.
