Buckminster Fuller’s daughter, Allegra Fuller Snyder attended the Inaugural Reception of the new Fuller Dome Gallery. This new exhibition space was made possible by a grant from the Meridian Society. It is located inside of the Fuller Dome on the SIUE campus. This inaugural exhibition created an opportunity to exhibit the Buckminster Fuller print portfolio, “Inventions, Twelve Around One.” Allegra had donated this portfolio of her father’s artwork to the Center for Spirituality and Sustainability in December of 2017 as way to recognize the good work being done by the Center to continue Bucky’s legacy.
The Center for Spirituality and Sustainability was proud to host a terrific group from St Louis, Women's Voices Raised for Social Justice. The Fuller Dome's creative consultant, Benjamin Lowder, shared the dome's history, the legacy of Buckminster Fuller and the social justice implications of resource consumption as it relates to architecture. The Women’s Voices’ mission is:
- To identify, research and discuss critical issues
- To mobilize, energize and inspire ourselves and others to action
- To work as individuals and in community for social justice
Women’s Voices achieves their mission through education and advocacy. Their program committee selects a variety of knowledgeable speakers to provide information on a variety of social justice issues. Programs are held on the second Thursday of each month, September through May, at 7 p.m. at The Heights (Maplewood-Richmond Heights Community Center), 8001 Dale Avenue, Richmond Heights 63117. Programs are open to the public, free of charge, and guests are welcome.
