COVID-19 Lockdown Item 25 - Jeff Koons - Michael Jackson and Bubbles Sculpture at the Broad Museum
Having been away from LA for a few decades with only brief visits, I missed out on a number of the Art Museum developments in the city. The Broad Museum opened in 2015 and is a great addition to the museum district downtown. More or less kitty-corner from the Museum of Contemporary Art, it is a nice all day art excursion.
Love him or hate him, Jeff Koons seems to get a rise out of people, and this porcelain sculpture of Michael Jackson and his pet chimp Bubbles is no exception, as it is pretty controversial in some circles.
