And Christo Wept

The Richard Serra retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art doesn't open until June, but sneak preview events will take place next month that would make Christo weep with envy. On April 7 and 14, MoMA will begin installing Serra's mammoth steel sculptures in its Sculpture Garden. A crane will hoist these colossi ("Intersection II" and "Torqued Ellipse IV") over the wall on 54th Street and into the garden, and the public is welcome to check it out. Witnessing these works flying through the air in midtown Manhattan will rival any type of public art performance. (Image via
