As if that weren't enough, Heinrich is also orchestrating a museum-wide series of shows anchored by textiles that will include entries from every curatorial department. Related to this will be a major Nick Cave solo in the Anschutz Gallery and the unveiling of the new textile gallery being installed right now by curator Alice Zrebiec on the sixth floor of the Ponti building. I won't even get into the trio of exhibits on the French masters coming this fall.

After sitting down with Heinrich, I ran into him again — and Yust — at the Christo event at Metro State's Center for Visual Art. One of the reasons Christo and his team were there was to present to the citizens of Colorado a matching pair of recent preparatory studies for his proposed "Over the River" project, which hopefully will be erected over the Arkansas River, in the southern part of the state, for two weeks sometime in the future.

The two multimedia studies were presented to Governor John Hickenlooper last Thursday and were hung in his office. "Over the River" is facing several lawsuits and can only move ahead if they are decided in Christo's favor. Christo explained that it would take 28 months to complete the project, and that since it's envisioned to happen during the summer, those 28 months have to start in January. Since January 2013 has come and gone, the soonest the piece could possibly be finished is summer of 2016 — if, that is, all the legal hurdles are cleared before this time next year.
