Drop City

8:00 PM, Dana Auditorium

This new documentary film by New York-based independent film maker, producer, and media artist Joan Grossman explores the rise and fall of the “Droppers,” 1960s artists who developed a concept they called “Drop Art,” making art a spontaneous part of everyday life in the face of a society they saw as increasingly materialistic and war-mongering. In 1965, they established the settlement Drop City near Trinidad, Colorado. Drop City's dazzling structures made of salvaged materials were based on Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes and the crystalline designs of Steve Baer. A flood of international attention led to overcrowding, and the community was eventually abandoned to transients. By 1973, Drop City had become the world’s first geodesic ghost town. Post-screening talk with the director. Sponsored by the Middlebury School of the Environment. (2012, USA, 82 minutes) Free
