Last week the art world was agog over Duke Riley's Queens Museum naval battle entitled "Those About to Die Salute You."

The Gates
 
"The Gates" were created by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in Central Park in 2005. It featured 7,500 frames with their hanging orange-tinted fabric, creating what the artists billed as "a visual golden river'' along 23 miles of footpaths in the park.
