Mayor Hickenlooper statement about Jeanne-Claude’s death

Mayor John Hickenlooper today released this statement about the death of Jeanne-Claude, the artist who collaborated with her husband, Christo, on large-scale public art. In Colorado, the couple was working on “Over The River, Project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado.”
 
“Jeanne-Claude was a giant in the art universe. Her legacy is immense. She and her husband shared art with the world for more than four decades and were creating a project in Colorado that would be talked about for generations. Their work was more than a joy to experience. It also brought international attention and economic benefit to each host city. We are deeply saddened by Jeanne-Claude’s untimely death.”
