"U.S. Clears Art Project by Christo in Colorado"

The New York Times reports that "federal regulators [have] approved a $50 million installation of anchored fabric over the Arkansas River in southern Colorado by the artist Christo."   The project will include eight suspended panel segments totaling 5.9 miles along a 42-mile stretch of the river.

Ann Althouse says "I think part of the art is the interaction with the local people and the authorities. I think of it as including a performance art component that is about law."
