Black Mountain College, a school founded in 1933 in Black Mountain, North Carolina, was a new kind of college in the United States in which the study of art was seen to be central to a liberal arts education, and in which John Dewey's principles of education played a major role. Many of the school's students and faculty were influential in the arts or other fields, or went on to become influential. Although notable even during its short life, the school closed in 1957 after only 24 years. 
The SEVENTH installment of the much anticipated Kulture Klash Arts Festival is just around the corner.
With water as the central theme, KK7 will feature over 50 artists, including the return of Carl James, along with Nathan Durfee, Badjon, SHT!, Proton, Scott Debus, and more, each utilizing a variety of creative mediums. In addition to art for sale, the show will feature artist interpretations of the quintessential Surf Shack. Performances include “darkness, light” 6 piece dance collaboration between choreographer Gretchen Mclaine and sculptor Lauren Francis Moore and a live wakeboard demonstration provided by Chuck and Chalice and sponsored by Rebootizer. Sounds provided by the Dubplates, Red Super Giant, Yacht Rock Dance Party with Cassidy & the Kid, MJ12, DJ Skitch, CPO Gents, Dicktracey, and a special surprise musical guest.
