Exclusive Members’ Exhibit Preview

If you could create your own world, what would it look like?

The new, original exhibit Imagine a World explores the history, ideas and art of intentional communities. It opens to the public on January 29, and members get an exclusive sneak peek on Friday, January 28!

Imagine a World examines attempted ideal societies in the Western United States — from the glass domes of Arizona’s Biosphere 2 to the infamous Rajneeshpuram in Central Oregon. The exhibit includes an immersive experience offering visitors an opportunity to envision their own ideal society.

MEMBERS, this event takes place at the High Desert Museum, and space is limited! RSVP today for an evening of music, libations and kids’ activities.
