This if officially the number #1 reason I’m pissed that my holiday flight out is tomorrow morning, because I’m going to miss the new KAWS Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloon. These past few years Macy’s has gone all artsy with their new balloon additions- and let’s face it, no complaints here. It’s great to see recognizable art/street art figures being represented in such a main stream event. So now KAWS joins the Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Tom Otterness and Tim Burton balloons.
What’s next year’s surprise Macy’s?…I’m waiting.
And what an evolution for KAWS…street artist to galleries, showing at the Armory and now a big 40-foot-long Macy’s balloon. What’s the bigger honor I wonder?
