Central Park Has New Clothes

Is it me? Or, is Christo’s latest project a monumental waste of money? Granted, my art background is a little sketchy (pausing while the laughter at my pun subsides), but I fail to see the beauty in 7500 “gates” of hanging saffron-colored fabric panels.

Judge for yourself. http://christojeanneclaude.net At the risk of sounding pedestrian, why am I reminded of flat-footed, two-legged creatures stalking around Central Park minus their heads and torsos, wearing draperies for skirts?

Maybe not a place to take the kiddies unless you want to sit up with them through the nightmares.
