The Bureau of Land Management will hold a series of meetings starting Tuesday on the artist Christo's plan to drape Arkansas River west of Canon City with fabric.
Christo's project is called "Over the River" and would put fabric over about seven miles of the river. He needs permission from the BLM to pull it off.
Some say the project would be hard on wildlife and would attract more visitors than area roads can handle safely.
The first meeting is tomorrow at Holy Cross Abbey Community Events Center in Canon City.
Meetings are also planned Wednesday at Cotopaxi High School in Cotopaxi and Thursday at the Senior Citizens Center in Salida.
All of the meetings start at 6 p.m.
