Environmentalists fighting Christo Arkansas River project… and each other

Six miles of fabric panels suspended over a portion of Colorado’s Arkansas River? Yep… it’s a planned Christo project. The artist known for transforming large spaces and objects has been conceptualizing his Over the River project for seventeen years… but many local green groups hope all of that thought and planning goes by the wayside because of concerns over environmental impact.

There’s a hitch, though… all the greenies aren’t on the same page on this one.
