I took my kids in to see the the Gates today and to the Met. Nice day here in
N.Y. and all the kids are off for winter break. Pretty crowded and my first
impression was that it's pretty cool but not one of my favorites from these
two. Funny to hear some debating is this art or not. Knowing what i know about
the Christo and Jeanne-Claude, I'm sure that's part of their equation.
   Our true highlight was seeing my kids expression when they saw Leutze's
Washington Crossing the Delaware. I know when I was young the scale of this
painting was pretty breathtaking too.
