Dome event showcases Bali artwork
EDWARDSVILLE — Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s Fuller Dome will host “Bucky in Bali” at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 13.
Buckminster Fuller was known to have traveled the world in his 87 years, but the Indonesian island of Bali held a special place for him. He fell in love with the culture of the islanders and became one of the leading collectors of Balinese artwork known as the “Young Artist Movement”. His collection of Balinese paintings from the “Young Artist Movement” grew so large that he ran out of wall space to hang the paintings and the collection spent decades in storage.
