Black Mountain College was based in Black Mountain, North Carolina in the Blue Ridge Mountains nearby to Asheville, North Carolina. The college was a non-accredited progressive educational experiment, which focused on the visual arts as the center of a liberal arts education. Over the span of the college’s existence from 1933-1957, the total enrollment was approximately 1,200 students. The college was in constant change with each semester differing from the previous depending on the faculty and students who were there. What remained constant throughout its existence was the college’s mission to teach art through hands-on experimentation, a pedagogy that has had a pronounced influence on contemporary art and art education.
