The rural commune founded in 1965 in Trinidad, Colorado "was a spectacular experiment in public art, architecture, resourcefulness and community." So says filmmaker Joan Grossman, co-producer (with Tom McCourt) of the documentary Drop City. The title, she says, refers not to acid but rather to art: the idea of dropping art into everyday life. "What I love about the people who were there is that they all have remained very engaged with their work, with social justice, with ideas about building and community," Grossman says. The film premieres at 7:30 p.m. at Liberty Hall (644 Massachusetts, Lawrence, 785-749-1972). Grossman is slated to be there, as is Drop City co-founder Gene Bernofsky, to lead a discussion after the screening. Tickets cost $6. (Grossman also discusses the film at a free screening Friday night at 7 in Atkins Auditorium at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, 4525 Oak, 816-751-1278, as part of this fall's Electromediascope series.)
