Six decades in the making, L’Arc de Triomphe finally gets the Christo treatment

Sixty years after it was first conceived, Christo’s ambitious plan to wrap the Arc de Triomphe in Paris is to be realised in September. Christo, who died last year, and his wife, Jeanne-Claude, who died in 2009, were famous for their ambitious installations that frequently involved wrapping landmarks such as the Reichstag in Berlin and Paris’s Pont Neuf bridge in greats swathes of fabric or installing sculptures that spread across huge tracts of land.

Like the VBMA’s current offering, on view through Sept. 5, that long-ago show of collage drawings, prints and multiples, and small wrapped objects was drawn from the collection of Californian Tom Golden (1921-2002).

Happy Hatch Day for Amelia and Christo, the red-tailed hawks of Tompkins Square Park

It appears that at least one egg belonging to Amelia and Christo, the resident red-tailed hawks of Tompkins Square Park, has hatched. (And thanks to Steven for these photos!) Christo perched on the edge of the nest while Amelia stayed inside. He appeared to be watching and/or waiting, something we've seen him do on hatch days in previous years. The hawks stayed in this position for over two hours, which is also notable. Finally, Amelia got up and the two of them fussed around with some food, Christo watching as Amelia tore it up, then went through the motions of feeding a chick deep in the nest.
