Christo prepares to walk on water

The temporary “artistic interventions” of Christo and his late partner Jeanne-Claude have included the Reichstag, New York’s Central Park and Sydney’s Little Bay. Christo is now hurrying to install a floating walkway on Italy’s Lake Iseo this June. Funding comes from the sale of preparatory drawings, an exhibition of which has just opened in Switzerland. Multiple images are here. Next up, Arkansas River.
