I happen to like Christo's art and I'm bummed at the lack of enthusiasm from the boating community.

The project has drawn support and criticism from environmental groups and the surrounding community, with a significant outcry from local sportsmen concerned with impacts to resident herds of bighorn sheep. Critics also worry that the Arkansas River fishery and regional fishing economy will suffer from the three-year buildup and removal of the project scheduled for a two-week display in summer 2013.

I'm glad someone is looking out for the animals so we have more to shoot in the head. The BLM (Bureau of Livestock and Mining) better step in to protect this pristine stretch of wilderness previously untouched by man.

I doubt really trust anyone who thinks they are just one name. Disrespectful to the elders.

But if he pulls this off I would try to run it while the thing is up, just for the sheer weirdness of it. Drop a couple of Owsleys best and go for the interactive art ride down the rabbit hole.

I like that he thinks in that scale but to think you can improve on vast swaths of nature ( never been on this stretch so can speak to that) with the addition of some material or orange, or banners or something. Like putting a maraschino cherry on top of killer, organic, home made ice cream Sundae and saying "look what I created".

Most of the boating community is interested in protecting river corridors from unnecessary impact. This is the least necessary impact ever conceived. He should find a new project, Colorado is never going to let it happen.

Christo is a moron, even by kansas standards. I believe you would be in the same category if you support such a detrimental project.
but I sho can swim!
