Christo alters our experiences of the built and natural environments by temporarily wrapping, veiling or covering them. This work shows preparatory plans for a 1978 project in a Kansas City park. 135,000 square feet of saffron-colored nylon fabric were used to cover 2.7 miles of the park’s walkways and jogging paths. The fabric, which was installed in two days by 84 people, including construction workers and seamstresses, remained in place for approximately two weeks. The material was then removed and recycled, and the park was restored to its original condition.
