The artist and visionary Christo died yesterday. "For the 1976 installation of Running Fence, a 25-mile gate of white nylon that ran through private land in Valley Ford, California, the couple had to persuade skeptical ranchers to let the artists temporarily co-opt their land for a project that was difficult to explain. After one complained to Jeanne-Claude that the work had no purpose, she replied that the purpose was simply beauty itself, and pointed to the flowers he’d planted in his front stoop instead of more useful vegetables."
