Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

It's not quite a wrap, but when the Bureau of Land Management announced that it had approved Christo's "Over the River," the art installation proposed for a 42-mile stretch of the Arkansas River in southern Colorado cleared yet another hurdle.

The Colorado Department of Transportation and the Colorado State Patrol, as well as some local municipalities, have yet to sign off on the plans, but at this point, all signs are pointing to Christo getting the go-ahead to start construction in 2012.

and poster (not city) Denver is already making plans:

I hope to eco-terrorize this project, and then I plan to sell the panels on eBay.

Lots of luck with that...
