Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Through the Gates and Beyond Book
By Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan
In 1981 two artists -- Christo and Jeanne-Claude -- proposed an installation in New York's Central Park that would span twenty-three miles. They received a 185-page response from the Parks Department that could have been summed up in one single word: "no." But they persisted. This biography of contemporary artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude is a story of the power of collaboration, and vision, and of the creation of the spectacular Gates and other renowned artworks. Christo and Jeanne-Claude is a 2003 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
