This week marks the 11th anniversary since Jean-Claude and Christo pulled off an ambitious art installation in Central Park. The creative duo -- known internationally for their work wrapping islands, buildings and trees with fabric -- set up 7,503 frames each with orange-tinted fabric through 23 miles of the park. They called it "a visual golden river."
School groups, tourists from across the country and local New Yorkers came to see the "The Gates, Central Park, New York City, 1979-2005," which opened Feb. 12 through Feb. 27, 2005. The gates required no holes drilled into the ground or tree branches trimmed. When it was taken down the piece left no trace. Here's a look back at the unique installation.
Correction: An earlier version of this story said it had been 10 years since the installation was in Central Park.
