Christo and Jeanne-Claude, those internationally renowned hucksters posing as “artists”, have come up with their most audacious and vulgar project yet. This geographic eyesore involves draping 40 miles of plastic sheeting over the Arkansas River in Colorado.
It’s hard to imagine a greater insult to the beauty of this river, outside of a bulldozer or chemical dumping, that could be perpetrated than this destitute attempt to once again fool the moronic dilettantes who comprise the brain trust of modern art. Not only is this a colossal waste of resources, but clearly exemplifies the disconnect that these people have with the natural world, one in which they think by putting up temporary supports and then draping the entire length in cheap plastic that it somehow enhances the natural beauty of the area or resembles anything that could seriously be classified as art.
Clearly, it’s crap.
