CHRISTO & JEANNE-CLAUDE

THE TOM GOLDEN COLLECTION




In 2001 Tom Golden donated his collection of works by renowned artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude to the Museum of Sonoma County in Santa Rosa, CA. Golden's personal and professional relationship with the artists began when he met them during the 1974 public hearings for their project Running Fence, Sonoma and Marin counties, 1972-1976. Golden went on to manage or assist with a number of the artists' large scale projects including The Umbrellas, Joint Project for Japan and the USA, 1984-1991 and, more recently, the Over the River, Project for the Arkansas River. Actively engaged with the art he so loved for nearly 30 years, Golden passed away at his home in late 2002. His remarkable collection reflects his friendship with and admiration of Christo and Jeanne-Claude.

Over 125 original drawings, sculptures, collages and photographs lovingly trace their impressive careers. Original works from the sculpture, Double Show Window, 1972, to a recent collage of Over the River


project, the collection captures the versatility, longevity and international scope of Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Drawings and collages of the large-scale public works, sold to fund the actual installations, are an important component of this collection. Those projects include Running Fence, Surrounded Islands, The Pont Neuf Wrapped and Wrapped Reichstag among many thers. There are also a multitude of smaller projects represented in original drawings from the whimsical Package on Radio Flyer Wagon to the haunting Wrapped Woman. Finally, unique to this collection are some small, poignant pieces made especially for Golden, including a wrapped bouquet of flowers.

The exhibition is available for circulation through 2024 . It was organized by the Museum of Sonoma County, Santa Rosa, CA from their collection. The exhibition tour is managed by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA.
