In May 1983, Christo and Jeanne-Claude surrounded 11 islands in Miami's Biscayne Bay with 6.5 million square feet of pink woven polypropylene fabric.

Christo (born as Christo Vladimirov Javacheff on June 13, 1935) and Jeanne-Claude (born Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon on June 13, 1935) are married installation artists who are best known for wrapping large-scale objects in fabric (for example the Reichstag in Berlin).

The artists have been active for a very long time: Their first collaboration ("Dockside Packages") dates back to 1961, and their most recent project ("The Gates") was completed in 2005.[1]
