If you missed the Jeff Koons Retrospective that just closed at the Whitney Museum this past weekend after a 3-plus month run, then you missed your chance to see this lovely piece of art up close and personal. Your bad! Like his famous Balloon Dog — the reflection of which is visible in the photo above — Moon (Light Pink) is one of Koons‘ mammoth steel sculptures with the hypnotic mirrored finish that make it so much fun to photograph, but impossible to get really clean shots due to its endlessly reflective surface! I think Moon looks like an oversized, inflatable button. Love this thing!

A little bit of research on the Google indicates that they’ve been around for about four years and no longer appear to be readily available to purchase expect on eBay.

Hey, can you guess where this cool Pink Bar is located? If you said the Ladies Room at Beauty and Essex Restaurant, give yourself a pat on the back! And why does Beauty and Essex have a bar in its Ladies Room, you ask? To serve the Free Champagne, of course!

Love Park (official name: JFK Plaza) is a plaza located in Center City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The park is nicknamed Love Park for Robert Indiana’s Love sculpture which overlooks the plaza. The Love Park fountain is often dyed colors throughout the year to commemorate or celebrate events. Here is has been dyed Pink as the kickoff for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (annually in October).
