Last fall, art collectors Eli and Edythe Broad launched a lecture series called the UN Private Collection. These public talks pair famous contemporary artists with cultural leaders.

Tonight, filmmaker John Waters takes to the stage to chat with artist Jeff Koons. Koons has made a name for himself with his massive colorful reproductions of objects like balloon animals. Last fall, his stainless steel sculpture titled Balloon Dog Orange became the most expensive work by a living artist sold at auction.

Jeff Koons joins the show.
