Christo’s Over the River project clears another hurdle

Environmental artist Christo has moved one step closer to realizing the project he and his wife and collaborator, Jeanne-Claude, conceived decades ago. The project, subject of our exhibition Over The River, a Work in Progress (October 11, 2008-January 25, 2009), will result in a nearly six-mile stretch of the Colorado River canopied by silvery panels of woven fabric for a period of two weeks.
