Artist Christo will appear in Colorado Tuesday and Wednesday as he continues planning for his Over the River art project.
Over The River is a planned two-week temporary work of art that calls for 5.9 miles of silver fabric panels to be suspended above the Arkansas River along a 40-mile stretch of the river between Salida and Can?on City. Fabric panels will be suspended at eight distinct areas of the river that were selected for their aesthetic merits and technical viability.
Christo is currently working to obtain the necessary permits so that his team can begin the installation process. Assuming the approval process runs as planned, it would happen in the summer of 2013 at the earliest.
