"Would-be art pirates" ...

Spotted off the coast of Floating Island Thursday. [NYT]

A powerboat-borne Gate -- ripped off from Christo -- chasing Smithson's posthumous "jewel-box version of Central Park." You knew it was bound to happen sometime, in a city bound to be full of jokers and artistes. I wonder if the UN was monitoring the situation.

As for Christo & Jeanne-Claude? Watch out Coloradans. They're planning their next big thing (Over the River) for -- at the earliest -- summer of '08. Can Through the Woods be very far behind?
