I’m able to say, now, that I’m in community wherever I am. I try to offer that to others. If you’re wanting to build a community, you don’t have to wait for some ideal situation. You can do it wherever you are.

– M.C. Richards

Dear Friends,

Starting Wednesday, September 16th, we will reopen our doors! BMCM+AC will be welcoming visitors 10 at a time to the museum, with masks and social distancing measures required. We will be open Monday through Saturday, from 11 am to 5 pm. Our library will be available by appointment only.

We will continue to offer online and hybrid events into the future, bringing BMC to you wherever you are in the world.

We are so grateful to the individuals and organizations that have supported us through our temporary closure. Due to your donations, we have retained our full staff and have been able to continue our work to preserve the history and extend the legacy of Black Mountain College. However, we are not out of the woods yet, and your support is still needed. We know these are difficult times for everyone and our entire community has been impacted. If you are able, we ask that you please consider supporting BMCM+AC either through a 100% tax-deductible donation or through an annual membership to ensure that we can continue bringing you art and informative history to remind you of human creativity and resilience now and in the future. You can also support us by making a purchase in the museum store, sharing our Museum from Home resources with others, or letting us know how we can mutually support you as well.

We would be incredibly grateful for any contribution you can make to help us through this challenging and unprecedented time. Thank you so much for being part of the BMCM+AC community.


The BMCM+AC Staff + Board of Directors
