rip christo. there will never be another.

I was so very sad to hear that the artist Christo has died at the age of 84.

I felt so incredibly fortunate to still be living in NYC when The Gates was there. I went through the entire installation multiple times, when very few people were there -- once in the snow, and once when Christo and Jeanne-Claude were walking through. I have tons of photos... but they're all on film and in prints!

Of course Christo and Jeanne-Claude were much more than The Gates! But that is where my life intersected with their art, and I'm very grateful for it.

Christo was such a giving and expansive artist. There will never be another.
