This just in: Fish don't care about art.
A biologist for the Colorado Division of Wildlife says that artist Christo's proposed draping of the Arkansas River won't hurt the fish. If anything, the draping project will offer a little protection for the fish, because anglers will have a hard time getting to them. There's another potential problem, though - gawkers who get out of their cars along U.S. Highway 50 could contribute to an ongoing erosion problem on the riverbank.
The Christo project hasn't been approved.
