Christo & Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection

Saturday, May 15 – Sunday, June 26, 2016
Charles R. Wood Gallery and Hoopes Gallery

This extraordinary exhibition of over 125 original drawings, sculptures, collages, and photographs traces the career of renowned artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, capturing the versatility, longevity, and international scope of the duo’s extensive career. Tom Golden’s personal and professional relationship with the artists began in 1974, during public hearings for Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s project Running Fence. This collection, one of the largest collections of art by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in the United States, represents not only the special relationship between an artist and a collector, but also the collaborative effort between the artists and the many people involved in producing the works.

This exhibition is organized by the Sonoma County Museum, Santa Rosa, California, and the exhibition tour is organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, California.
