After I saw Jeff Koons Split-Rocker at Rockefeller Center, I went to see Jeff Koons: A Retrospective at Whitney Museum of American Art. Because of the show’s popularity, museum announced to extend hours. I went on Friday after 7pm. Visitors were still making a line to enter.
I felt very funny. People showed great appreciation to his works at museum. On the other hand, at Rockefeller Center, tourists were busy to take pictures with his giant Split-Rocker. They are not interested in examining it as a piece of art work.
Anyway, I now know Jeff koons is very popular. Well done Whitney Museum!
There was a small incident. When I went to there, everything seemed normal. I didn’t know that until I read the article.
