In 1974, the five founders, Gene Bernofsky, JoAnn Bernofsky, Richard Kallweit, Charles DiJulio and Clark Richert, artists and filmmakers from Drop City, regrouped in Boulder, Colorado to start the new artist's cooperative, Criss-Cross. C-C's purpose, like Drop City's, was to function in a "synergetic" interaction between peers to create experimental artistic innovation.
