In 1991, Toronto artist Sheila Gregory read that Christo was spending over $20 million to bring to life his latest Umbrellas project, and she wanted to ask him about it. Sheila flew to New York and spoke with Christo for over an hour. The interview was played in 4 parts on CKLN radio’s Art on Air. For the next 30 years, it has lived in a drawer on cassette tape. Recently, Sheila came across it while organizing boxes of old photos.
