Tangerine Orange and The Gates

Pantone announced that the color of the year 2012 is Tangerine Tango. Pantone tries to capture the current feeling and mood of our times into a single color.  To quote Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, ” (Tangerine Tango)…continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.” (From the New York Times)

I have recently been remembering The Gates project by Christo and Jeanne-Claude.  I was fortunate to have experienced this stunning installation in Central Park.  The orange fabric moving with the wind was in direct contrast to the blue skies and stark winter in New York City.

Here’s to energy, recharging, and moving forward.
