Dean Martin In A Marshmallow World

RIP, Jeanne-Claude: May the Pearly Gates be wrapped for you

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

Very sorry to hear the news that artist Jeanne-Claude passed away last night at the age of 74. I’ll never forget seeing her with her husband Christo at the premiere of their Central Park installation, The Gates, in 2005. I shot this photo of them not long after the opening ceremony:

Rest in peace, Jeanne-Claude. When you get to the Pearly Gates, I have no doubt they will be wrapped with fabric in your honor.
