What does Nurture New York's Nature have to do with Christo and Jeanne-Claude?

Nurture New York's Nature (NNYN) was formed in 2003 as the on going steward of a license agreement donated by the artist's Christo and Jeanne-Claude to renowned mediator, Theodore W. Kheel. The artists' gift gave NNYN an exclusive, worldwide royalty-free license to use the intellectual property rights from The Gates Project for Central Park, to raise money to support NNYN's mission. The artists also donated signed art prints to NNYN to raise proceeds to support its programs. All proceeds from the license will be used to support NNYN. The artists receive absolutely no revenue from the license agreement or the sale of art prints.

About the Signed Art Prints:

Are the prints signed by the artists?


Christo signs prints of preparatory works (drawings, collages, paintings). Both Christo and Jeanne-Claude sign prints of completed projects (photos).

What is the printing process for the art prints and what type of paper are they printed on?

The printing technique is a special offset-lithography with a high density of dots. The following Gates prints are printed on a special paper called hammered cardboard with an ivory surface. It is similar to the paper used by artists for drawing. The paper is very thick, a little rough and therefore very resistant to any damage. The printer needs between three and ten times the ink in relation to a normal art print paper because the surface is not closed and the ink goes deep inside the paper. This makes the image much more brilliant.

9345, 9346, 17685, 18277, 18296, 18370, 18371, 18372, 18376, 18377, 18378, 18379, 18383 (I, II, IV, VIII, IX, XV, XIX, XX, XXI, XIII, XXIV, XXV, XXVI and XXIX)

The following Gates prints are printed on standard art print paper with a closed surface. The ink sits on the surface of the paper. Again, the printing technique is a special offset-lithography with a high density of dots:

CH002, 16553, 18298, 18373, 18380 (II, III, X, XXII, XXVII, XXVII).

How are the prices for the prints set?

Nurture New York's Nature purchases the art prints from a publisher in Germany. The publisher sets all prices for the art prints, including price increases on signed prints. Nurture New York's Nature does not have the right to sell the prints at a lower cost.

How much does an International Order cost to ship and how are the prints sent?

The shipping and handling cost for international orders is US$100. Nurture New York's Nature uses UPS Worldwide Expedited, which is a fast, guaranteed service for less urgent international shipments. It offers guaranteed on- time delivery from 2 to 5 days, door-to-door delivery, all-inclusive rates including customs clearance, three free delivery attempts for unclaimed shipments, free on-demand pickup, included protection by UPS against loss or damage up to a value of US$100.
