PON saddened by the death of artist and Great Negotiator, Jeanne-Claude

Event Date: Thursday January 1, 1970

“The Program on Negotiation is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Jeanne-Claude, half of the dynamic and brilliant artistic partnership of Christo and Jeanne-Claude,” commented Robert H. Mnookin, Chair of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School. “In September 2008, we honored Christo and Jeanne-Claude as the Program on Negotiation’s “Great Negotiators”. Negotiation was clearly a vitally important component of their artistic process, as they convinced everyone they needed to convince that their large-scale and complex projects should be realized.”
