Artist Lecture: Christo and Jeanne-Claude - Two Works in Progress.
Join us for a special evening with one of the most influential artists of our time. Christo and his late wife and collaborator Jeanne-Claude are best known for their monumental projects that temporarily transform urban and rural landscapes in places as varied as New York City, Paris, Japan, California and Colorado. This lecture will feature two upcoming projects, Over the River, Project for the Arkansas River, Colorado and The Mastaba, Project for the United Emirates. Seating will be very limited. Reservations required; we will begin taking reservations on August 1st. On August 1st, please call 505- 338-8760 to reserve your seat. Reservations will be taken in the order they are received. Due to the popularity of this event, people will be limited to no more than two tickets. Tickets will be available for pickup at the Museum between 5-5:45 p.m. on the date of the event unless otherwise notified. If the event is sold out, and you wish to be placed on a waiting list, please come to the Museum at 5 p.m. on August 22.

Book Signing: Christo
After the lecture (reservations only) the artist Christo will be signing copies of the exhibit catalogue, Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection, as well as three other in-print Christo and Jeanne-Claude titles the Museum Store will be bringing in for the exhibit. The catalogues may be purchased in the Museum Store before the lecture for $16.95. Only lecture attendees will be allowed into the book signing, and only books purchased that night in the Museum Store will be eligible for the signing. Limitations will be enforced. This is a rare opportunity, as the catalogue is out of print, as our most Christo and Jeanne-Claude titles.
