Saturday April 5, 2014

The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC) and the Media Arts Project (MAP) announce the 5th annual {Re}HAPPENING, on Saturday, April 5th 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.

The April 5, 2014 event will begin with a cocktail hour, leading into a seated “family style” dinner. This year’s dinner will feature a guest chef/curator and an expanded focus on the culinary arts. The second part of the evening, will begin at 8:30pm and include an extended evening of music, art and performance along with drinks and food trucks. The overall event will end by midnight.

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.

The 2014 artist lineup will be announced soon, so stay tuned to www.rehappening.com for updates.
