Summary Christo's Wrapped Walk Ways is a stunning work dedicated to public interaction and communal observation. As we follow Christo down his path, he shows us exactly what those who lend themselves to the piece experience. Covering a total of 2.8 miles of walkway in Kansas City's Loose Park, Christo's golden nylon morphs and molds with each step, touch, and breeze. By encouraging visitors of the park to interact with the piece, the artists makes them aware of their own fleeting movements. The inclusivity of the art is rare and notable as we watch people of all ages walk, run and skate over the shimmering softness of Christo's fabric. Though Christo provided the canvas, it feels as though those who involve themselves with the piece are contributing artists. It is their footprint and motion that provide Christo with the outcome he imagined
