First day of school

Wow - 11 years!?

This week marks the 11th anniversary since Jean-Claude and Christo pulled off an ambitious art installation in Central Park. The creative duo -- known internationally for their work wrapping islands, buildings and trees with fabric -- set up 7,503 frames each with orange-tinted fabric through 23 miles of the park. They called it "a visual golden river."
