The Jeff Koons: A Retrospective exhibit at the Whitney Museum explores a whole wealth of art by the modern American artist from the extravagant to the mundane. The Whitney has dedicated the majority of the museum to this major exhibition spanning his professional lifetime and including pieces from various exhibits from over the years. While there are x-rated pieces(that are separated by signage) the majority of the collection is family friendly and inspiring to all ages.
Koons produced most of his major work in New York City and is best known for his reproductions of banal objects like balloon animals produced in stainless steel or other metallic colors with mirror finishes. This has made him loved by some critics and loathed by others. I personally love the playfulness in all his art and his creativity in presenting everyday things in a new way. There are a lot of underlying sex as well as other "hidden" messages in many of his works. Take a close look at the Luxury and degradation series for examples.
Here is but a small taste of the fun and thought-provoking art by Mr. Koons on display at this exhibit
