Harry Shunk and János Kender were two famous photographers who teamed up in 1958, taking photographs of the greatest artists of the time and eventually wrapping famous buildings in the United States. In the Library: Process and Participation in the Work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude at National Gallery of Art primarily covers two large-scale wrapping projects, Valley Curtain and Wrapped Coast, which both portray the preparation and construction of what building wrapping entails all the way up to the final art installation.
Experience why these projects were a success and what they meant to the general public in this interesting and educational exhibit on display from now until April 14th.

The exhibit is open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the National Gallery of Art in the East Building. The exhibit is entirely free of charge.
