Gilbert & George U.S. Tour

A retrospective of the work of eccentric celebrity British duo Gilbert & George made its U.S. debut at San Francisco's de Young Museum, comprising more than 80 pictures made since 1970. Included in the exhibition are selections from the Ginkgo Pictures, which was part of the exhibition that represented the United Kingdom at the 2005 Venice Biennale. Now the exhibition is at the Milwaukee Art Museum June through September 2008, and it ends its international tour at the Brooklyn Museum of Art (Brooklyn, New York) October 2008 through January 2009.
View many of the Ginkgo Pictures on my Art-page.

Ginkgo root system in planters

I am a new owner of two ginkgo trees (they are @ 5ft tall) and I just love them.  I want to make sure I plant them correctly so we can enjoy them for a very long time.  We are wanting to plant them in our planters that are 3ft tall by 14ft long and they would be in full sun.  I know they are slow growers but will there be a problem of the roots breaking through the planters eventually or there being enough room for the root system to grow properly?  The bottom portion of the planter is open to the ground below.  Any info would be great!!  Thank you.
