BLACK MOUNTAIN COLLEGE MUSEUM
+ ARTS CENTER * June 17-September 17 * Curated by Jason Andrew * With all the on-campus Happenings, geodesic-dome constructions, and proto-Beat poetry hogging the art-historical limelight, it's easy to forget that Black Mountain College was also a hotbed of painting in the 1940s and '50s, when an illustrious faculty that included Josef Albers, Robert Motherwell, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, and Jack Tworkov espoused their respective approaches to abstraction.
Joseph Fiore: Painter/Teacher is the most recent in a series of enlightening exhibitions held on the premises of the Black Mountain College Museum
and Arts Center (BMCM+AC) in downtown Asheville, North Carolina.
The Black Mountain College Museum
and Arts Center, a nonprofit organization, has been created to establish a permanent facility near the original college site, just outside town on idyllic Lake Eden, that will preserve the history of the institution and host exhibitions, events and performances.
