A partnership between Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center and Lake Eden Preserve|
This one-hour tour will cover the historic lower campus buildings including The Dining Hall, Lodges, The Quiet House, and The Studies Building as well as the iconic and recently conserved frescos painted by Jean Charlot and BMC students in the summer of 1944.
Black Mountain College was founded in 1933 as a radical experiment in education and community. In May 1941, following the end of their lease at the original BMC location at the Blue Ridge Assembly, the College moved its operations to Lake Eden, where it remained until its closing in 1957. This location saw the rise of the iconic Summer Institutes, the flourishing of the architecture and work program, and became a site of experimentation that indelibly impacted the world of arts, culture, education, and craft.
