Planned in 1979, the project hung 7,503 five-meter-tall, saffron-colored pieces of cloth along pathways in Central Park for two weeks in February 2005. Some, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg, applauded them as a change from the dreary wintertime scenery; others, including TV hosts David Letterman and Keith Olbermann, saw them as annoying and pointless. It all led back to the ultimate question of whether Christo and Jeanne-Claudes works are merely meddlesome intrusions of the art world into the real world, or if some people just dont get it. 8:30 p.m. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney.
