Too many people are showing up to experience Christo’s “Floating Piers”

In the age of Instagram, when every cool experience needs to be documented for all posterity, is it any wonder that Christo’s “Floating Piers” artwork, in which blocks of yellow fabric float on top of Italy’s Lake Iseo, has attracted an insane amount of crowds?

To be specific, 350,000 people have visited the art site, which opened last Saturday. According to the New York Times, the organizers had planned for around 40,000 to 45,000 people per day. Part of the reason for this mass amount of people is that the exhibit will only remain open until July 3rd, meaning that anyone who wants to snap a pic of the beautiful work needs to hurry up and get there.

Because of the insane crowds, officials responsible for the project have decided to close it at night from midnight to 6 a.m., giving them time to clean up the space, empty the (very full) porta potties and just clean up all the garbage everyone left.

“The area couldn’t appear dirty against the backdrop of this work of art,” the mayor of Monte Isola told the Times. Indeed, stinky porta potties hardly seems to go with the aesthetic Christo had in mind.
