DESCRIPTION

Drop City tells a story of whimsical innovation and the drive to create a new civilization on the scrapheap of a wasteful society. Often cited as the first rural commune of the 1960s, Drop City was an experimental community on the plains of Southern Colorado that blended practices of art, architecture, and resourceful living in ways that came to define a global counterculture. Visually arresting, idiosyncratic and utopian, Drop City's significance has deepened as a new generation embraces a do-it-yourself spirit for confronting an uncertain future.
