In search of Jeff Koons collectors and enthusiasts

Kate Penn, FlipSide: “Hanging Heart” is displayed during the media preview of “Jeff Koons: A Retrospective” at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

I’m sure you’ve already heard, but I covered the opening of the “Jeff Koons: A Retrospective” exhibit late last month at the Whitney Museum in New York City.

Since I filed that story and the Daily Record ran this item, calls and emails have been steadily trickling in from folks who are curious about Koons. It got me thinking about a few things:

1. Does anyone from York County have a Koons piece?
2. Does anyone from York County have an interesting Koons anecdote?
3. One question I’ve heard for years — and again during the last few weeks: How can York get a Koons piece? I know of a few separate efforts happening around that. But it might be more effective to create some kind of united effort headed by a local organization. Just a thought. Discuss.

Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas on all things Koons. Email me at emccracken@ydr.com or call 717-771-2051.
