The Black Mountain College Research Center and Permanent Collections Gallery (56 Broadway, Asheville, NC), serves as a multidisciplinary, digital technologies center for art, craft, design, photographic and archival collections, and as a new educational, research and visitor orientation center. Designed by Randy Shull, it features modular and movable display systems, allowing for a possible future Black Mountain College Museum+ Arts Center (BMCM+AC) and Center for Craft Creativity and Design Research and Think Tank Center at 67 Broadway (2014-15).
The BMCM+AC was founded in 1993 to honor and pay tribute to the history and legacy of Black Mountain College (1993-57) and to acknowledge the college's role as a forerunner in progressive, interdisciplinary education with a focus on the arts. Black Mountain College (BMC) attracted a roster of gifted individuals, some of whom went on to become well-known and extremely influential including: Josef and Anni Albers, Willem and Elaine de Kooning, Robert Rauschenberg, Peter Voulkos, Jacob Lawrence, Karen Kames, Merce Cunningham, John Cage, Cy Twombly, Franz Kline, Buckminster Fuller, M.C. Richard, Francine du Plessix Gray, Charles Olson, Robert Creeley and Jonathan Williams.
