The Gates - no message, no moral imperative, no statement, nothing.



Once upon a time there was The Gates
Artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude told about 100 delegates from around the world who toured The Gates in Central Park that they want people to think of their projects as a once-in-a-lifetime experience reports Houston Chronicle.

"We love these words: Once upon a time there was The Gates in Central Park. Once in a lifetime and never again," Jeanne-Claude said at a reception Thursday for delegates at the Boathouse in Central Park.

The 16-day public art installation, which ends Feb. 27, features 7,500 gates of saffron-colored fabric swaying in the breeze along 23 miles of the park's footpaths.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude, who spent 27 years getting permission for their project and who have shelled out upwards of $21 million to erect the arches for a 16-day Central Park season, claim there is absolutely no point to The Gates - no message, no moral imperative, no statement, nothing. umm OK.

Jeff Jarvis - buzzmachine.com puts The Gates in prospective - "Call me a cynic. Call me a philistine. You've called me worse. But I don't get The Gates."

I think it is cool to just have 21 million dollars for art and the patience to wait 27 years everything else is a blur, this is what they wanted right, "The Gates - no message, no moral imperative, no statement, nothing. "

PS. a good friend told me that if I had a helicopter I might be able to appreciate The Gates, I hear its really pretty looking down.
