Over The River™

The acclaimed artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude proposed the Over The River™ project, a temporary work of art on the Arkansas River between Salida and Cañon City, Colorado.

The artists retained Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell to assist them in obtaining federal, state, and local permits to realize the project and to guide them through the process for the first Environmental Impact Statement ever done on a work of art.  We also negotiated private contracts, leases, and licenses for the project and successfully defended litigation over permit matters.  The artists later cancelled the project.
