Ballerina Clown

Sculpture in Venice, Marina Del Rey & Playa del Rey

Even the artist, Jonathan Borofsky, has questioned the taste of this landmark sculpture of a ballerina in a bearded clown mask perched above the corner of Rose Ave and Main St. But he also says – and it's hard to disagree – that it represents the Venice vibe: eclectic, gender-fluid and blending classical technique with a street performer for the masses.
