Aug 3, 2019 - Nov 3, 2019
The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College is excited to present a free special exhibition, Utopia: A New Society for All, on view August 3 - November 3, 2019.
Born from the artist’s desire to build community, Utopia exists both as a 4-by-7-foot diorama- based installation and as a conceptual art piece, bringing virtual reality into the real world. Anyone can apply to become a citizen of Utopia. Over 80 people from all over the world already have. Upon acceptance, artist and Utopia Founder and Facilitator Becky Wareing Steele renders each applicant in 1:160 scale in a process called miniaturization. She then places them within the Southwest-inspired landscape of the diorama where they inhabit an Earthship-style dwelling.
