Opponents to Christo: “Don’t Hang the Curtains Yet”

Even though artist Christo won federal approval to drape fabric over six miles of the Arkansas river in November, a new federal lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Denver, along with continuing local opposition  to his “Over the River” project, may yet derail the project.  “‘Anti-Christo forces, led by a group that has dubbed the project, and the name of their organization, ‘Rags Over the Arkansas River,’ or ROAR, said that moneyed interests and state politicians were pushing a project that would mostly benefit outsiders.” Kirk Johnson covers the continuing story for The New York Times.
