First Look: Jeff Koons Sculptures Debut atop Metropolitan Museum

koonsA.JPG

The rooftop of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is now home (at least through October 26) to three large sculptures by artist Jeff Koons. We got a sneak peek this morning and can confirm that Koons’ yellow chrome balloon doggie prefers the view over Manhattan to canal-level Venice, where his magenta sibling spent the summer of 2006 perched on a platform in the Grand Canal guarding the Palazzo Grassi. More Koons news to come (including what the man himself had to say when not being monopolized by an astounding number of German film crews), but for now, click “continued…” for our photos of each of the works — at least until you can get to the roof yourself when the museum opens tomorrow.
