Christo Continues Fight for $50 million Arkansas River Installation
The French artist duo Christo and his late wife Jeanne-Claude, known for their epic site-specific installations, have long been beset by legal battles and environmental reports posing obstructions to their work. The pair are far from the first to catalyze charged debate over public art or Land Art; Richard Serra’s Tilted Arc (1981) went on trial in the ’80s, with major artists including Claes Oldenburg and Keith Haring coming to its defense before the structure was removed in 1989. As Christo continues fending off legal challenges to Over the River—a proposed project that would drape nearly six miles of Colorado’s Arkansas River in silvery fabric for two weeks in August 2015 (at the earliest), which has been in the works for some 20 years—the duo’s latest project is no exception.
