Since 1985, the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts has sponsored Visions and Choices, a series of unique exhibitions offering the citizens of San Angelo a chance to define and present their own concepts for the future of their community. The San Angelo Nature Center, the re-vitalization of Historic San Angelo, and Celebration Bridge are just a few examples of projects displayed at past Visions and Choices exhibitions that have since become a reality.
The sixth installment of this popular series is FUTURE LAB: Visions and Choices VI, which opened at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts on September 19 and runs through November 10.
FUTURE LAB encourages the local community to publicly display their ideas for improving and beautifying San Angelo. Exhibition participants use drawings, photographs, models, and written statements to present their visions, including specifics such as building site or social concept, possible cost, and materials or actions required.
The exhibition is designed as a creative laboratory that will grow and evolve throughout its eight-week duration as visitor input is integrated. The museum has provided an area for people to sketch their own ideas while they visit the exhibition and will host a series of related lectures on topics such as city planning and the discipline of Futurism.
