Libre was founded by artists in 1968 on southern Colorado's beautiful and rugged high mountain plains and exists still today as a place apart for artists and countercultural thinkers. One of the longest running intentional communities, Libre manifested during the communal living movement in the late 60s and 70s, in which youth dissatisfied with mainstream society explored alternative forms of living. It's known for domes and "zomes" inspired by Drop City and Buckminster Fuller, hand-built by the artists who founded it. The art, architecture, and artists of Libre contributed mightily to the countercultural aesthetic of the era. Libre's influence—along with the collective swell of its founding era—can be seen today in contemporary art and culture.
