“Ours is a community arts center with a mission of “bringing arts to the people and people to the arts.”
The Black Mountain Center for the Arts (BMCA) was the dream of a small group of visionaries, who in 1993 organized and found a way to save the Old City Hall from destruction. They obtained the building, raised over a million dollars and succeeded in renovating the 6,000-square-foot facility into a welcoming and vital landmark. BMCA was incorporated in 1995 and opened its doors in October 2000. In 2009, the Old City Garage was also renovated and made into a clay studio behind the main building. This community arts organization has sought to create a physical place for the arts to come together and flourish in the Swannanoa Valley in Buncombe County. See our website for more information

The campaign calls attention to the fact that women have not been treated equally in the art world, and today they remain dramatically underrepresented and undervalued in museums, galleries, and auction houses.
