In the second of a seemingly endless series, Wynn Las Vegas today unveiled a sculpture entitled The Balls that Took Up Space.

Wynn Sculpture

I think they're pretty.

Koons? Is SW getting into the modern game?

Big public art is so Winter '09.

I'd think that the space would be too small for the entire tulip construction, but I guess I haven't been in that area in a while.

Maybe instead of Andrea's eyes...these are her turds.

Bring back the Picasso.

you're right. the entire construction is pretty remarkable (i vividly remember the reflections of a rainy day in bilbao). i bet chuck can spin quite an analogy... buying a statement piece of modern art, and cutting it in half. a version (with stems) just sold at christie's for $33.6MM:


if you look at the reflection on the floor you can see the stems havent been broken. the tulip sculpture isnt that big (around 17 feet round), so it could possibly fit.
FYI; there are 5 tulip sculptures. i wonder if SW bought the one last november or if this is on loan from somewhere?
