The Second Coming of Christo

Christo and Jeanne-Claude's The Gates, a Project for Central Park, New York City is coming this spring. You can joke all you want about Saran-wrapping stuff as art, but this is going to be byootiful and we New Yorkers are going to dig it.

One of my first freelance gigs in NYC was copyediting and fact-checking for a certain international arts journal published in a unique square format. We had a hell of a time finding out what Christo's real name is. He has a Romanian surname of some kind but shrouding it in mystery seems to be an extension of his aesthetic project. Not your standard day at the office.
