Wynn Las Vegas welcomes Popeye by acclaimed American artist Jeff Koons, as part of the resort’s continued appreciation and commitment to public art. At 6 feet 5 inches tall and more than 2,000 pounds, the mirror-polished stainless steel Popeye stands proudly in the Wynn Esplanade. The sculpture took two years to create (2009-2011) and was acquired at auction in May 2014 for a price of $28,115,000. Koons created three versions (plus artist’s proof) of the famed character, one of which now calls Wynn Las Vegas home. The sculpture depicts the spinach-eating sailorman in a vivid spectrum of color.
