Description: When Christo set out to erect a fabric fence across 24 miles of California ranch land, he encountered massive resistance from landowners and bureaucrats alike, in addition to conservationists who thought he would harm the landscape. Permission was eventually obtained from the California Coastal Commission, among other county, state, and federal agencies. The fence extended across the rolling hills of northern California to the Pacific Ocean, and provided what Christo referred to as an obstructive membrane that he hoped would change the public's perception of the land.~ Alice Day, All Movie Guide
