Christo & Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection

November 7, 2014 - February 5, 2015
Main Gallery

Exhibit Overview

Christo and Jeanne-Claude met in Paris in 1958, marking the beginning of the most extraordinary artistic partnership of our time. Today they are most well-known for their monumental public installations in which they wrap buildings, erect curtains, outline islands, and “plant” umbrellas in the developed and undeveloped landscape. The Kimball Art Center is proud to bring the largest U.S. collection of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s original drawings, sculptures, collages, and photographs to Park City.

Each A.R.T.S. school tour for the Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection will include a presentation about their work followed by an art project. Students grade K-2 will build a landscape in modeling clay, and students grade 3+ will complete a creative “wrapping” project to go along with the exhibit.

The Kimball Art Center is able to provide the free A.R.T.S. School Tour Program for the Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection to public, private, charter, home schools and youth organizations thanks to underwriting by Vail Resorts, the R. Harold Burton foundation, and Edward Lifesciences, with additional support from the Larry and Judy Brownstein, Swartz Foundation, Mountain Living, George S. & Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation, Summit County RAP Tax, and the Utah Division of Arts & Museums.
