Christo and Jeanne-Claude


Take advantage of a rare opportunity to see the breathtaking documentary The Gates on Thursday, February 19th, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. at the Fine Arts Theatre.

After 26 years of fighting bureaucracy, Christo and Jeanne-Claude succeeded in transforming 23 miles of New York City’s Central Park paths into a saffron-colored, snow-filled winter wonderland.

This film by Antonio Ferrara and the award-winning documentary pioneer, Albert Maysles, follows the artists from project inception in 1979 through to its stunning completion.

Join us for the highly anticipated special film screening of The Gates at the Fine Arts Theatre. This special film screening is $10 for Museum Members, seniors and students and $12 for general admission.

And don’t miss the exhibition Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Projects on view at the Asheville Art Museum January 16th through May 3rd, 2009. This exhibition was organized and curated by the Asheville Art Museum with special thanks to Christo and Jeanne-Claude. This exhibition is sponsored in part by Bank of America.
