    Jeff Koons was great and what really made it was the public tour my friend and I globbed onto. Very informative and gave context that helped inform the whole exhibit. Also, great selfie opportunities.

    Be sure to check out the Jeff Koons exhibit - visit before they move downtown to a new location. Their restaurant in the basement is a great place to unwind after checking out the art.
