CREATE YOUR OWN PUPPY CONTEST
Follow the contest on Instagram
Deadline: June 1, 2020
Rising 43 feet from its paws to its ears, Jeff Koons’ Puppy is formed from a series of stainless steel armatures constructed to hold over 25 tons of soil watered by an internal irrigation system. Over 70,000 multi-hued flowering plants grow from this steel and soil structure, including marigolds, begonias, impatiens, petunias, and lobelias. First created in 1992 for a temporary exhibition in the German city of Arolson, Puppy—a symbol, according to Koons, of “love, warmth and happiness”—embodies the artist’s sculptural imagination.
