Kallitechnia Town Square

You can't take a vacation in Kallitechnia. It is a closed community running an elaborate social experiment. The people who live there are of varied racial and ethnic backgrounds, and they have to learn to live together. I suspect that a stay in Kallitechnia was time-limited and you would have to go home to the "real world" and apply what you learned in the domed utopia. I never knew what kind of politics these people practiced, though the author was a libertarian. Here in the village you see a scene that I derived from my years in Italy, with a town square, a central fountain, shops, restaurants, and vendors. In the lower right hand corner you can see the author-client, looking through prints at a stand on the street. 

Original art was black ink on illustration board, 11" x 14", February 1996.
