Environmental artist Jeanne-Claude died yesterday as a result of complications from a brain aneurysm. She was 74 and is survived by her artist husband/partner - Christo.
This gives me the sads in a major way. I had the privilege of enjoying their "The Gates, Central Park" project back in 2005 - an art installation which blew me away by its massive scale and simple beauty.
Jeanne-Claude seemed like one fierce French biatch - and the world is a little less colorful now that she is gone.
