Douglas G. Adams introduced Christo at the opening of an art exhibit on April 15. Entitled “Christo and Peter Setz, The Running Fence Project Revisited,” the exhibit featured Christo’s plans for the “Umbrella Project,” as well as images from “The Running Fence.”
The event combined a display of Christo’s projects with the retirement of Peter Setz, founding director of the Berkeley Art Museum and a long time friend of GTU. Selz assisted Christo with the planning and implementation of “The Running Fence.”
The Library was conceived as a facility that would be open to the public for lectures, events and for the display of art, sculpture, rare books, and historical materials.
