Christo Park Art Approved

New York City has finally approved a Central Park art installation proposal by artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, nearly 25 years after they conceived the idea. For two weeks in February 2005, 7,500 fabric-draped gates—16 feet high and varying in width from 6 to 18 feet—will line the park's many pedestrian pathways. The artists, who are funding the work themselves, came up with the idea for the piece in 1979, but the proposal was repeatedly rejected due to environmental concerns.
