Drape Over Troubled Water?Photograph by Jason Miller, AP

In an artist’s illustration, fabric panels drape over metal beams that span the width of the river.

Opponents disagree with Christo’s assurances that the project’s effects on the environment will be temporary.

"While true that the actual exhibit is only for two weeks, the process to construct, assemble, and remove the structure would take two and a half years or more—leaving behind 9,100 steel rock anchors permanently implanted in the canyon walls," said Carol Neville, a member of ROAR.

"This extended time frame will create adverse impacts that will linger for years afterward."
