Today, February 12, is the 10th anniversary of the unfurling of The Gates - Central Park, New York City.
An epic undertaking by visionary installation artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude. In 2005, 2/12 was a Saturday, and the news, both local and national, covered the story of this significant event. The following morning every local newspaper had ART on the front page. Saffron glory.
The Gates remained in the city until February 27. Beginning today, I will be celebrating with 16 days of blog posts. It's my way of saying It Mattered. Come along with me.
