Life of Famous, Idiosyncratic Inventor Examined at MCA
Fuller is best known for his geodesic dome. He also invented a large three-wheeled car, and portable housing.
Fuller's ideas, so ahead of their time, are finding new followers and interest todayâ€”decades later. The show outlines his deep Chicago ties. WBEZ's Lynette Kalsnes went on a gallery tour.
This audio tour is with MCA curatorial coordinator and curator of artists' books, Tricia Van Eck, and Fuller's daughter, Allegra Fuller Snyder. The show features sketches, models and video of Buckminster Fuller. His ideas are still influencing artists and environmentalists today.
