Despite the scary, balloon-releasing protesters complaining about Jeff Koons‘ exhibit at Versailles, it looks like the whole thing has been a big hit. So much so that the organizers have decided to extend the run by another month so that more people can see his inflated animals and gilded Michael Jackson. Here’s from Art Info:
The exhibition of 17 Koons sculptures, including the porcelain Michael Jackson and Bubbles and the monumental, brightly colored steel Balloon Dog and Lobster, has drawn more than 250,000 people to the 17th-century royal chateau since it opened on September 10. Scheduled to run until December 14, the show will now stay open through the holiday season, closing on January 4.
