An Ode To Olmsted In Orange

Christo’s 'Gates' not possible in sprawl America.

From everywhere, people flocked to New York City last month to experience the extraordinary installation in Central Park by the environmental artist Christo and his wife, Jeanne-Claude. For two weeks until February 28, tall gates draped with saffron-colored banners wound along the 23 miles of walkways that grace 843 acres in the center of Manhattan. This was an urban art spectacle like we’ve never seen.
