Artist Christo Visits HBSTopics:
To illustrate entrepreneurship from a different angle, HBS professors Josh Lerner and Felda Hardymon and research associate Ann Leamon wrote a case about Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the husband-wife team known for their massive, self-funded outdoor art projects. (Their Central Park installation, The Gates, cost them $20 million and took 26 years from concept to completion.) At HBS in April, the two discussed the case with students.
