Christo will discuss Over The River, Project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado, a work in progress that he and Jeanne-Claude started in 1992. Christo plans to suspend 5.9 miles of silvery, luminous fabric panels high above the Arkansas River at eight distinct areas along a 40-mile stretch between Salida and Caņon City. This proposed temporary work of art is currently undergoing a permitting process through the Bureau of Land Management, and Christo will provide information on ways to get involved at the lecture. 
Lecture is open to the public and free of charge, but space is limited.
