Christo, an internationally renowned artist, will present a lecture on two works in progress: Over The River, proposed temporary work of art that will suspend 5.9 miles of silvery, luminous fabric panels high above the Arkansas River in south-central Colorado. The Mastaba, a project for Abu Dhabi, will be the largest sculpture in the world, made from 410,000 multi-colored barrels to form a mosaic of bright sparkling colors, echoing Islamic architecture. Previous Christo and Jeanne-Claude projects include: The Gates in NYC’s Central Park and the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin and the Pont-Neuf bridge in Paris.
