The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC) was founded in 1993 to honor and pay tribute to the spirit and history of Black Mountain College and to acknowledge the College's role as a forerunner in progressive, interdisciplinary education with a focus on the arts. Emphasizing the individual rather than the institution, the College had striking success in producing creative people of great talent and originality. Black Mountain College left both a remarkable legacy in the arts and an important educational model. Through exhibitions, publications, lectures, seminars, films and oral history interviews, BMCM+AC is committed to spreading awareness about Black Mountain College. In addition to our programming, other ongoing projects include oral history interviews with BMC alumni and the development of a permanent collection to provide safe storage for artwork and historical materials related to the College.
