The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC) and the Media Arts Project (MAP) produced the 4th annual {Re}HAPPENING, on Saturday, April 6th from 6pm to Midnight in the original dining hall of the former Black Mountain College, now Camp Rockmont. Inspired by our imaginings about what a “typical” Saturday night at Black Mountain College might have been like, the {Re}HAPPENING pays tribute to the groundbreaking artistic innovation of Black Mountain College as well as its community tradition of Saturday night parties and performances. The goal of the event is to bring BMC’s dynamic energy into the present day. Many people who have attended a previous {Re}HAPPENING consider it to be one of the very best events of the year.

At each year’s {Re}HAPPENING, local restaurants provide flavors, scents and nourishment to both the audience and the artists. The evening brings together more than fifty artists from the region’s diverse creative communities in a beautiful setting that occupies a unique place in history. The opportunity for contemporary artists and performers to collaborate and create new work in the dining hall, the roundhouse, the lodges, the outdoor grounds and waters of Lake Eden on the former Black Mountain College campus makes the {Re}HAPPENING a singular and deeply resonant event.
