The Gates 2.0: Christo’s Anti-BP Art?

07.20.10 Marina Galperina

Christo (sans recently deceased Jeanne-Claude) has planned a sequel to their Gates installation, laying orange fabric panels along 42.4 miles of Arkansas River – but first, a rigorous, fully documented examination of the environmental impact. Christo points out that oil companies’ projects undergo a much lighter review. Good point. Let’s hope it doesn’t get mistaken for an AT&T advertisement.
