Bucky Dome


An evening of art installations, video projections, music and performance art at the Buckminster Fuller Dome Home in Carbondale on Saturday December 2. Doors open at 6 pm. Performances will begin at 8 pm, following the Lights Fantastic Parade. Open gallery viewing of art works on November 30, December 1, and December 2 from 12-5 pm.

To commemorate Buckminster Fuller’s legacy, SIU graduate students in the MFA media arts program will stage an evening of live performances and art environments within the original dome home that Fuller designed and lived in for many years. The media art created for this show is inspired by the unique structure and ambiance of the Fuller Dome Home. In the spirit of Buckminster Fuller’s revolutionary ideas, the show addresses the current global, environmental crisis with art works that propose possible futures.
