Atrium will be exhibiting a series of sculptures and prints by artist/architect Buckminster Fuller.

Opening Reception Friday March 15, 6–8 p.m.

Buckminster Fuller was a renowned 20th Century figure, known for his achievements in many related fields, including engineering, art, design, architecture, philosophy, literature, and education. He operated as a practical philosopher, illustrating his theories through all of these disciplines, and was really known as a "visionary." He was interested in solving problems of our civilization and always acted globally in seeking solutions. He was certainly among the most brilliant persons of our time, and aside from his art, architecture, and design contributions, his strongest legacy may be the influence he has had on so many other individuals working to create a more sustainable planet.

This exhibition will feature several sculpture works, as well as a number of prints of his many "inventions," his global map, and other designs.
