An exhibition called "The Gates" opened at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art Tuesday. The exhibit includes drawings, plans and mockups of the 7,500 saffron-colored, nylon fabric "gates" that famed conceptual artist Christo and his wife, Jeanne Claude, want to install along Central Park's walkways. NPR's David D'Arcy reports.
