Fodor's Expert Review Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center

Downtown Asheville Museum/Gallery

Although it was around less than 25 years, the famed Black Mountain College was important in the development of several groundbreaking 20th-century art, dance, and literary movements. Some of the maverick spirits it attracted in its short lifetime were artists Willem and Elaine de Kooning, Robert Rauschenberg, Josef and Anni Albers, and M. C. Richards; dancer Merce Cunningham; musician John Cage; filmmaker Arthur Penn; futurist Buckminster Fuller; and writers Kenneth Noland, Charles Olson, and Robert Creeley.
