We welcome this second week of summer with open arms as the warm weather we’ve been oh so patiently waiting for brings with it plenty of amazing art and design events happening outdoors (and in). This week, Jeff Koons descends upon New York, first hitting up Rockefeller Center with his giant living floral sculpture, Split Rocker, then rounding out this verdant new work with a full on retrospective at the Whitney’s Upper East Side Breuer Building.

But if you just want to relax and recline (literally), Air France will be kicking off the weekend by bringing a little bit of Paris to New York. Three days of French flavor are planned for anyone who wants to partake, and guests will get to indulge in delicious food and drink and even take French lessons while lounging in one of Air France’s first class chairs. C’est bon!

All the best events here

Is it a giant rat? A horse? A dinosaur? Those passing by 30 Rock over the past week and a half have probably been wondering what’s going up in the famed plaza (at least we have). Word has it that Jeff Koons is back in the ‘hood, this time with a massive sculpture of a pony, or “Split-Rocker”, grafted in living flowers and complete with an internal irrigation system.

Editor’s note 8/27: This article has been updated to show the completed work, seen above.
