DENVER (AP) - An art project to drape fabric panels along a 42-mile stretch of the Arkansas River has passed another hurdle.

The Colorado Supreme Court has denied a request for further review of the Colorado State Parks agreement that allows artist Christo’s “Over The River” temporary work of art to move forward.

The case is also on appeal in federal court challenging a ruling that upheld the federal Bureau of Land Management’s approval of Over The River.

The Canon City Daily Record reports (https://tinyurl.com/pjujdbk ) the project is being delayed because of legal challenges brought by opposition groups Rags Over the Arkansas River and the Quiet Use Coalition.
