BLACK MOUNTAIN CENTER for the ARTS

 “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


CELEBRATE WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH WITH US! The National Museum of Women in the Arts

It started with a seemingly simple question: Can you name five women artists?

Since 2016, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) has been asking this question on social media each March during Women’s History Month using the hashtag #5WomenArtists. 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.

Central Park’s first-ever female statue is coming in 2020

The women behind the first statue of a woman from history to be erected in New York City’s Central Park discuss its groundbreaking importance.

In 1995, the artist Meredith Bergmann was working on a film set in Central Park when she noticed something was off. 

“I noticed then there were no statues of women,” said Bergmann. “There was a wonderful Alice in Wonderland sculpture, but there were no sculptures of actual women of note and accomplishment.”  Click here to continue reading
