Christo, “Hate it or like it is irrelevant”

David Frey has the latest on Christo’s controversial project over Colorado’s Arkansas River.

At the MCA Denver, the sketches and photos of a secret life-size model erected near the Utah elicited audible wows. It’s far from a sure thing, though. Because almost all of the project would be on public land, Over the River is subject to an intense environmental review by the Bureau of Land Management. A draft environmental impact statement released in July resulted in more than 4,500 public comments, many voicing concerns over the project’s possible impact on wildlife and the environment, and on the region’s fishing guides, a mainstay of the economy.
