This exhibition documents internationally recognized artist, designer and builder Randy Shull’s creative process in the planning, design and construction of two contemporary art museum and research environments for the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center in downtown Asheville, NC. Built in two phases, Phase One (2014-15) focused on the renovation and conversion of the museum’s original 56 Broadway site into a new three-zoned environment featuring a public entry and retail sales area with an adjoining Black Mountain College (BMC) orientation center, an expanded and updated BMC exhibition gallery, and a new BMC library, research and study center. Phase Two (2015-16) is a new exhibition, performance, program and office environment designed for a converted historic property at 69 Broadway where expanded contemporary exhibitions and programs will be presented in a flexible, multi-functional public space. The exhibition will consider the distinctive architectural design of each site, as well as the hand-made furniture, counters, desks, cabinets, and display systems by Randy Shull Design, built using vernacular and available regional materials, and inspired by the design aesthetic and creative philosophies of Black Mountain College.
