The Gates

Filed under: General — Artflux at 7:41 pm on Wednesday, February 16, 2005

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog. Ive returned from the
park a few hours ago where to see The Gates by Christo and Jeanne-Claude on exhibit
there. It cost the artists some 20 million dollars to complete. The
flowing curtains with their Tebettian-like monkish look giving a feminine
flowing orange feel to the park’s austere natural beauty of trees,
and surrounding architecture.

It’s well worth taking a look at if you
have the time and find an window of opportunity coincided with
favorable weather. I had both this morning.

The temp was close to 55F.The sky was mainly overcast however the occasional glimpse of the sun shining behind the curtains made for an illuminating feel. The rain
came down later in the afternoon. I wonder what they look like wet?
Whatever the fabric it would be nice if it snowed to see the bright
orange against the white snow.

Here’s the complete gallery.
