In other big art news, it’s soon going to be much more difficult to get yourself a stainless steel balloon animal made. This might not affect the majority of you, but for one Jeff Koons, it’s a pretty big deal. The art fabricator the artist has used for years to make his large sculptures, Carlson & Co. has laid off all of their workforce and will be closing their doors immediately, reports Bloomberg. Although seemingly on a roll, given their work with Koons and other well-known artists, the company finally reached its breaking point as the art market slowed to a crawl and commissions did too. Owner and founder Peter Carlson tells the news outlet that the California-based company “will be filing something ‘akin’ to bankruptcy.”
