This past Sunday we drove to New York (2 hour drive) to see a very unusual art exhibit called the "Gates" in Central Park. It was up, only for a two week period.
For those not acquainted with the exhibit, it is a line of over 7500, 16' high, bright orange structures set up on the walkways in Central Park. As one person put it, "The Gates consisted of a line of giant croquet wickets edging the park paths as far as the eye could see, their crossbeams hung with a deep flutter of (orange) fabric that embraced the walkers beneath".
The creators were Christo and Jean-Claude, the same artists who wrapped the Reichstag in Berlin with fabric, and also the Pont Neuf in Paris with fabric tied with rope. As you can imagine it has caused quite a stir in NYC.
This is a series of five photos of the event. I'll let you be the judge of their artistic worth.
