Artist Jeanne-Claude, Cristo's Wife and Co-Wrapper of Biscayne Islands, Passes Away

Artist Jeanne-Claude, Cristo's Wife and Co-Wrapper of Biscayne Islands, Passes Away

passed away yesterday at the age of 74 from complications of a brain aneurism. The husband and wife were known for their large-scale projects that transformed landscapes.


While Cristo, as it seems to go, gets more of the credit, the project that brought the duo to Miami in 1983 was based on Jeanne-Claude's idea. The couple wrapped 11 Biscayne Bayislands in pink synthetic fabric.
