Interactive Gates

Okay, okay. So I really AM a glutton for this project. Since I can't be there in real life, this interactive feature in the NY Times is the next best thing to being there.

Click on 'The Gates:' An Appraisal under the Multimedia section of this NY Times' article and see/hear Michael Kimmelman's assessment of this incredible Gates project by Christo and Jeanne-Claude.

BTW, for those who belly-ache about the art or the $20M extravagance (can you imagine a $20M movie star like Brad Pitt using his money for something like this?), it doesn't hurt that NY City will be raking in an estimated $80M for this 16-day extravagance! Kinda silences the critics?
