Publications

Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center publishes books and chapbooks, dossiers, and exhibition catalogues about the people, art, and ideas of Black Mountain College. These publications are available through our Online Store under “Museum Publications” or in our retail space at 56 Broadway. If you have any questions about these or other books we carry, please email info [at] blackmountaincollege [dot] org or call (828) 350-8484.

We also produce The Journal of Black Mountain College Studies, an online peer-reviewed publication. This journal is an outgrowth of our annual ReVIEWING conference, organized in partnership with UNC Asheville. Articles and creative works appear from experts around the world, who enter into an interdisciplinary dialogue on a wide range of topics.
