The Gates
Available on Tubi TV
In 1979, artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude proposed one of the largest artworks in history: a "golden river," or 7,503 fabric-paneled gates in Central Park. Twenty-four years later, and after the election of Michael R. Bloomberg as mayor, the project was completed in February 2005. THE GATES chronicles the evolution of the project from concept to realization, ultimately overcoming public disapproval and transforming Central Park into a visual symphony of color and light.
