“Over The River” & The Podunk Hicks

“People think we’re a bunch of Podunk hicks who don’t apprec­iate art.”

“At issue is a proposed installation by the artist Christo, who wants to “suspend 5.9 miles of silvery, lum­inous fabric panels high above the Arkansas River along a 42-mile stretch of the river between Salida and Caon City…”

An even better ‘wtf’ quote: “The actual viewing of the installation, called “Over The River,” would take place over two weeks in 2014, but it will take two years to build and several months to dismantle. Construction will consist mainly of installing anchors along the banks of the Arkansas, to which the cables that hold up the panels will be attached. The whole job is expected to cost $50 million.”

In this instance, may I comment that Art = Audacity, Arrogance, Assault
