New Christo Project in Colorado

The new project by the artist Christo has been approved by federal regulators. Christo plans to install suspended panels of fabric over the Arkansas River in Colorado.

The project, “Over the River,” will include eight suspended panel segments totaling 5.9 miles along a 42-mile stretch of the river, about three hours southwest of Denver. Construction could begin next year, pending final local approvals, with the goal being a two-week display of the work as early as August 2014.

Jeanne-Claude, Collaborator With Christo, Dies at 74

“We want to create works of art of joy and beauty, which we will build because we believe it will be beautiful,” Jeanne-Claude said in a 2002 interview. “The only way to see it is to build it. Like every artist, every true artist, we create them for us.”

RIP.
