Black Mountain College Museum

Asheville, NC


Second Annual Art Event Announced

Media Arts Project and Black Mountain College Museum   Arts Center
Celebrate Innovation & Collaboration in the Arts

The Media Arts Project (MAP) and the Black Mountain College Museum   Arts Center (BMCM AC) announce the second annual {Re}HAPPENING, on Saturday, April 9 in the original dining hall of the former Black Mountain College, now Camp Rockmont.

Inspired by our idea of what a typical Saturday night at Black Mountain College might have been like, the {Re}HAPPENING begins with a meal %u2013 with tastes from over a dozen different local restaurants and farms %u2013 surrounded by art as various performances happen around the seated audience. During the second half of the evening the dining hall becomes the main performance space, while music, multimedia art and more takes place across the rest of the campus into the night. Nearly 400 people attended the inaugural event in 2010. For a detailed look at the 2010 {Re}HAPPENING, please visit to view photos and video from the show.

%u201CThe BMC campus will be transformed into site-specific art spaces where everything from sculptural video installation, to interactive sculpture, to multimedia-based performance takes place,%u201D said Gene Felice, a board member of both organizations and the artist coordinating the event. %u201CThe idea is that art is %u2018happening%u2019 all around us simultaneously.  It%u2019s up to the viewer to choose to see or experience in the moment, possibly missing something going on in another space, but knowing that they are part of the creative process that is transpiring around them.%u201D

In partnership with the MAP, this BMCM  AC event pays tribute to Black Mountain College by bringing its dynamic energy into the present day. The project has developed as an innovative fundraising and art-based collaboration between the two non-profits, balancing the history, innovation and experience of BMCM AC, with the forward-thinking and media-based collective of artists that defines the MAP.

The April 9, 2011 event will begin with a cocktail social, leading into a seated %u201Cfamily style%u201D dinner. The second part of the evening will include drinks, light appetizers and an extended evening of art, performance & dancing. Tickets for the entire evening including dinner are $50 ($40 for BMCM AC and MAP members). For the second half only, the ticket price is $15 ($10 for members).

Vinnie%u2019s Neighborhood Italian will again provide the main course, and dozens of local restaurants will contribute.  The 2011 artist lineup will be announced soon, so stay tuned to for updates.
