Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Over The River project

In the same vein as Andy Goldsworthy, the landscape for Christo and Jean Claude is a canvas. The husband and wife team, renowned for their 1969 piece — Wrapped Coast — and early 1980s Surrounded Coast series, are still going strong with their project in Akansas entitled Over the River. The sketches are ambitious, but that’s never deterred them before. What they plan is the suspension of fabric panels over the Arkansas River, following its changing course for over 5.9 miles, ‘interrupted by bridges, rocks, tress, and bushes and for aesthetic reasons, creating abundant flows of light.” The project will be unveiled (or veiled?) during a period of two consecutive weeks between mid-July and mid-August of any given year in the future, in 2012 at the earliest.
