The Artist Christo Has Died At 84

Christo, who with his wife Jeanne-Claude created massive art projects requiring dozens of years to pull off, including wrapping the Reichstag and creating The Gates in Central Park, has died. In 1972, he explained, “For me esthetics is everything involved in the process — the workers, the politics, the negotiations, the construction difficulty, the dealings with hundreds of people. … The whole process becomes an esthetic — that’s what I’m interested in, discovering the process. I put myself in dialogue with other people.” – The New York Times
