More "Over the River"

A few weeks ago, The Denver Post offered the opportunity to send in questions that we would like to ask the artist, Christo.  Here is a link to those questions and the artist's answers.

Q&A with Christo

The artist Christo answers reader questions about his "Over the River" project.

Editor's note:The artist Christo recently agreed to answer questions from Denver Post readers about his "Over the River" project. Here are his answers to a selection of the questions we received.

I'm afraid that this question and answer session did nothing to sway my opinion about Christo or his "Over the River" project. The "Over the River" project is an egotistical old man's selfish attempt at altering one of Mother Nature's beautiful creations. 'Nuff said.
