Jeff Koons’s liquid gold sculpture arrives at Bal Harbour Shops in time for Art Basel
After the exhibition around the world, it came the turn of the visitors of Bal Harbour shops to be face-to-face with the famous art piece "Pluto and Proserpina". The 10-foot-tall stainless steel, which will be on display until December, was the star of the evening in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Bal Harbour Shops.
The event had the presence of Eduardo Costantini, Chairman of Consultatio Real Estate, and developer of Oceana Bal Harbour, where the sculptures will be permanently installed upon it’s completion in fall 2016. Constantini bought "Pluto and Proserpina" and "Ballerina," in 2012 for $14 million. "Pluto and Proserpina" is estimated to become one of the most valuable pieces of art created by the American artist Jeff Koons.
