KAWS TO CREATE BALLOON FOR 2012 MACY’s THANKSGIVING PARADE
Honor Fraser Gallery is pleased to announce that KAWS will produce a balloon for the 2012 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Translating one of the characters KAWS has developed over the past years, COMPANION, into a monumental inflatable sculpture, KAWS joins a list of artists that includes Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, and Tim Burton, who have also produced works for the parade in the past.
You can read more about this project in Carol Vogel’s recent NY Times article here.
