The Gates is a land art project by Christo and Jeanne Claude. The artists installed 7,500 metal “gates” along 23 miles of pathways in Central Park in New York City. From each gate hung a flag-shaped piece of saffron-colored fabric. The project is scheduled to run from February 12, 2005 through February 27, 2005.
The project is sometimes referred to as “The Gates,
Central Park, New York,
reference to the time that passed from the artists' initial proposal
until they were able to go ahead with it.
