Found myself at another free venue of beauty with a visit to the Knoxville Museum of Art. Here was a special event with the works from the Black Mountain Community artists. For those who follow the blog, I had visited this Community last week. Interesting sequence of events.. Here are are some of their amazing works..
Black Mountain College birthed a new generation of artists and craftspeople who came from all areas of the world. Many were escaping Nazi Germany. It was founded by John Andrew Rice in 1933 as Black Mountain College, a progressive liberal arts college. It created some of our country’s leading thinkers, artists, and writers in this mountain setting. The College closed in 1957, however it’s legacy continues.
