Radical: 50 Years of Libre Intentional Artist Community (1968-2018)

Opening Reception // Friday, September 7 // 5 - 9 pm

Libre was founded by artists in 1968 on southern Colorado's beautiful and rugged high mountain plains and exists still today as a place apart for artists and countercultural thinkers. One of the longest running intentional communities manifesting out of the surge of communes in the Southwestern United States in the late 60s and 70s, it's known for hand-built domes and "zomes" inspired by Drop City, Buckminster Fuller, and hand-built by the artists that founded it - many of whom live and work there still.
