Jeanne Claude RIP

 Wrapped Reichstag by Christo and Jeanne Claude

 The art world suffered another loss this week when Jeanne Claude, wife, partner and collaborator, died of complications from a brain aneurysm.  Many people did not even know this name, preferring always to just say Christo.  These amazing artists have labored for decades, working with governments and authorities all over the globe to realize their visions and to help us revision our world.  Here's a link to their website, starting with the page about all the errors that have been part of their struggle.  The projects are vast and the sketches are phenomenal!
