The LaReunion Artists' Community is named after the European Utopian community founded by Victor Considerant in 1855. Founded in 2006, the community's vision is "to offer time and space for a conversation between new and traditional media artists. LaReunion's ideals about community and public space are expressed by the courtyard, bridge and amphitheater. A courtyard and amphitheater is provided for artists and community members to meet, socialize and enjoy the outdoors. A bridge goins two sides of the site while figuratively crossing the divide between traditional and new media artists. The result is a space for art, a space for artists and a space for the public to appreciate and learn about art.
