A Roundup of Balloon Artwork

A recent visit to a kids' hair salon confirmed the timeless charm of balloons. In a shop packed to the gills with toys and tchotchkes, the thing that excited young patrons most was the promise of a post-haircut balloon. Here are ten pieces of wall art that tap into that appeal. (No clowns here. We are reclaiming balloons from their scary face-painted counterparts.)
