Looking for Utopia: American Artists' Communities

First Wednesday Art Talk

Utopia is Everywhere

Many artists have sought a place to commune, create, and craft outside the convention and strictures of society.

They have set up dozens of artist communities, some utopian, some dystopian, from 19th century American experiments to 20th century enclaves like Arcosanti and, of course, Burning Man.


What have they achieved?
What goals do they serve?
Come find out.

Independent Docent Speaker: Avril Angevine

This talk is coincides with the Art of Burning Man exhibit at the Oakland Museum, 10/12/2019 – 2/16/2020.
