Alice Constance Austin by Karyl Newman at Llano del RioNear the dairy barn ruins at the Llano del Rio socialist co-operative, Karyl Newman placed ALICE outside of the silo to honor the feminist architect’s little known designs for the colony.

The September 21st event references Alice Constance Austin’s 1935 book, The Next Step: How to Plan for Beauty, Comfort, and Peace with Great Savings Effected by the Reduction of Waste, created by Craftswoman House/Cindy Rehm and Hinterculture/Karyl Newman with Larissa Nickel to announce and provide context for a call for proposals for the Centennial Celebration in May 2014.
