Two one-week Landmarks workshops for fifty community college faculty members on Black Mountain College's intellectuals and artists, who gave shape to modernism in America.

Black Mountain College (BMC) was founded in 1933, during the Depression, and closed in 1957, during the McCarthy era. Despite these somber bookends (and with WWII during the middle years), BMC has become legendary both as an experimental college and as a progressive educational community. It is recognized for its influence in the arts and for its efforts to create an environment where learning was broad-based, multi-faceted, rigorous, experiential and wholistic. The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center proposes two one-week workshops during Summer 2011 for Community College faculty to study the history of BMC and to experience its ongoing legacy. Participants will be exposed to a balance of scholarly presentations and experiential workshops and field trips and will work with experts who have close connections to this topic.
