Buckminster Fuller -
Scholars,architects, artists and practitioners
gathered in Asheville, NC to celebrate
Buckminster Fuller, the legendary inventor of the 20th century and a visionary role model for a new generation of artists, thinkers and problem-solvers in the 21st century.
"Bucky" is a hero around Asheville. Starting in September, 2012 the The Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center in partnership with UNC Asheville, the UNC Asheville Howerton Distinguished Professor in the Humanities and the Buckminster Fuller Institute are presenting an exhibition representing Fuller’s own ideas and inventions. It is an exciting opportunity. Expect a selection from Invention: Twelve Around One, a portfolio of screenprints published by the Carl Solway Gallery, which include images and schematics of Fuller’s inventions.
Not to be outdone, ReVIEWING Black Mountain College 4 offered a weekend gathering of scholars, architects, practitioners and artists coming to Asheville to discuss, present and experience topics and workshops related to the forward-thinking ideas of Buckminster Fuller. “The three-day conference will focused on Fuller's "comprehensive anticipatory design science" as a means for fostering prosperous, livable communities through creative, interdisciplinary thinking. The weekend program included an array of presentations, panels and free experiential workshops connected to the vast web of ideas, initiatives and practices that Fuller championed during his life - and that others have taken on since his death.
