Things are heating up in the world of all things Buckminster Fuller-- what we're calling around here the DC Bucky Convergence of Spring 2010.
There are events all over the region, beginning March 22nd with a screening as part of the DC Environmental Film Festival at the National Building Museum, and rolling right into summer. There will be public art displays in Crystal City, conferences on a bunch of different aspects of Fuller's work, and events leading up to the opening of the play: R. Buckminster Fuller: THE HISTORY (and Mystery) OF THE UNIVERSE.
Like this one:
On March 29th Arena will hold a special event in our Crystal City theater with members of the Buckminster Fuller team. Join Bucky's daughter, Allegra Fuller Snyder and his grandson, Jaime Snyder as they discuss the legacy of R. Buckminster Fuller and his work in the world today. D. W. Jacobs will discuss the work of the play. Both Allegra and Jaime are powerful presenters and you leave a discussion with them charged with the essential message of Fuller's work:
“If success or failure of the planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do… How would I be? What would I do?”
