ON ALL Day - Future Foundations at Llano del Rio, CA Sunday May 6th

If you are curious about the desert or experimental Utopian communities from over 100 years ago, join us for ON ALL Day - Future Foundations, Sunday, May 6th, 2018. As the colonists at Job Harriman's cooperative socialist endeavor did each May Day, to take stock of their progress, we invite artists, historians and musicians to share their own site responses at an annual public event around the Llano ruins. Working with the Llano Community Association and private landowners, we coordinate events to introduce newcomers to the settlement history, and expand the knowledge and understanding of the location to foster future preservation and stewardship. Each year we focus on different places around the 2,000 acres owned by the colony. This year we focus on the residential experience of the 900 comrades who lived in tents and adobes south of what is highway 138 today. We offer a walking tours of the deserted foundations, a tent similar to the living conditions of the time filled with period furnishings and ephemera, the ever popular sound bath in the silo and the opportunity to make and mail a postcard from Utopia featuring postage commemorating the under acknowledged feminist architect of the proposed permanent residences for the colony.

$15 in advance and $20 day of. A thirty minute sound bath, postcard and postage and walking tours are included.

Join us in the desert Sunday, May 6th from 10am-4pm. Tickets are required,

See you in Llano!
