The Gates of Highview. This project was a response to Christo\'s The Gates Project in Central Park. We made the Gates of Highview School. The Gates were six foot high and made to walk under like the original concepts. The class was studying goods and services so they researched where the paint, fabric, and wood came from and how they are made. Drawings were made of the story and developed into paintings illustrating the process. These pictures and words were painted onto the fabric so that the story can be read as you pass through.
