During the Art Wynwood contemporary art fair in downtown Miami, a woman attending the VIP Preview event accidentally broke a highly valuable sculpture created by renowned artist Jeff Koons. The shiny, electric blue sculpture, worth an estimated $42,000, was on display at the Bel-Air Fine Art booth when the woman, without realizing the artwork's value, touched it and caused it to shatter.

Following the incident, the VIPs gathered to assess the damage and take stock of the situation. Fortunately, the Bel-Air Fine Art booth did not have a "if you break it, you buy it" policy, and the artwork was fully covered by insurance. Bénédicte Caluch, an art advisor with Bel-Air Fine Art, confirmed that the woman who broke the sculpture was an art collector who did not intend to damage it.

Despite the unfortunate incident, the fair staff quickly swept up the shattered pieces, and no one was harmed. Although it was a shame that the sculpture was damaged, the gallery took it in stride and held no hard feelings towards the woman. It serves as a reminder to all art fair attendees to be mindful and careful around valuable pieces, as that cute little balloon dog just might be a priceless work of art.
