Tuesday afternoon Tom and I went to the local college to attend a lecture with Christo and Jeanne-Claude. I've never been lucky enough to witness one of their creations in person. Did anyone get to walk through the gates in Central Park? The lecture plans were a bit last minute for us and I wasn't really sure what to expect. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised and very entertained. I was afraid it might be dry and boring with the artist prattling on about themselves and their work. Instead we were treated to an hour of the two of them joking and teasing one another, acting every bit the old married couple that they are, during a side slow presenting a new project they're working on - wrapping a river!

Oh! What a neat opportunity to listen to them speak! I've always enjoyed the few artist lectures I've attended; finding out more about the person (or people!) behind the artwork is always exciting.

I know I already commented on Flickr, but this dress is so gorgeous! :)

I love that dress. The print is so modern-looking.

I would love to go to a lecture by those artists. I went to their website and I must say I really didn't understand most of their work at all, but sometimes that's a good thing.
