A Christo Wrap-Up

Christo and Jeanne-Claude have been pleasing crowds for years with witty site-specific temporary artwork. Remember the Biscayne Bay installation featuring 6.5 million square feet of pink polypropylene or the coastlines of Japan and California dotted with thousands of colored umbrellas? The artists' unconventional oeuvre doesn't fit easily inside a museum building—they're more likely to wrap it in woven polyamide anyway. But the Vero Beach Museum of Art and nearby Gallery at Windsor are giving it a go. The two institutions are displaying preparatory drawings, collages, scale models, large-scale photographs of completed works, and films documenting the installation process. Seen by the public for the first time, all material comes from the collection of W. Galen Weston, the Canadian chairman and founder of the Windsor residential development. Gallery at Windsor: December 8–March 21. Vero Beach: December 8–January 5; 772-231-0707; verocfta.org.
