Koons sculpture a ‘historic moment’ for Sacramento art

Shelly Willis signed for quite a package earlier this month. It was 18 feet tall, weighed 11,000 pounds and was worth $8 million. The delivery of artist Jeff Koons’ sculpture outside the new Golden 1 Center was the culmination of a nearly two-year journey in which Willis and others maneuvered political minefields, juggled the wants and criticisms of local artists, and raised the cash to support the largest investment in public art this city has ever seen.
