Rags Over the Arkansas River
The push for a massive art project along the Arkansas River is facing a new lawsuit.
The artist Christo is once again delaying the timeline for exhibiting his Over the River project amid legal challenges against agencies that have given approvals for it.
The Bureau of Land Management is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by citizens who oppose the artist Christo’s latest project.
The artist Christo wants to stretch fabric over the Arkansas River as part of a massive art exhibition. But now a group of University of Denver law students are joining in on the fight to put a stop to it before it ever starts.
Federal land managers are considering a proposal by the artist Christo to hang 5.9 miles of shimmering fabric across the Arkansas River in Colorado for two weeks, but supporters and opponents of the plan aren’t keen on a compromise.
