By Walt Hickey Welcome back! Death of the Art A visitor at an art fair in Miami knocked over a $42,000 balloon dog sculpture by Jeff Koons, causing it to shatter into over 100 pieces and resulting in what experts are calling the fifth-worst outcome for a balloon on U.S. soil in the past two weeks. The person who broke the statue tapped on it with her finger, leading to the slip. Thousands of the sculptures exist around the world, and some are over 10 feet tall, and now the number of 40-by-48-by-16 cm "Balloon Dog (Blue)" sculptures that exist has decreased from 799 to 798. The remains of the balloon dog are in a box awaiting review from an insurance company.
