Monday's Musings: Remembering The Gates (Not Bill and Melinda)
The picture atop this entry, as well as the two that are directly below, are images of greeting cards featuring views of The Gates; a public art exhibition that opened in Central Park in 2005 and lasted through 2-28-2005.
According to a web-page, "The Gates tempted millions of people to visit Central Park. The 7,500 structures in this epic public artwork – 'gates' holding saffron-colored fabric – lined 23 winding miles through the iconic park."
I saw the exhibit on a number of occasions including times that weather conditions were full shine, bitter cold temperatures, rain, hail, sleet and snow. I even have a swatch (which was given to me by someone on one of the teams who were involved in setting up the installations) of the "saffron-colored fabric" that was used.
