Saturday Nights at Black Mountain College ...
... all manner of wild and crazy things happened. The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center and the Media Arts Project hope to revive the tradition. As Kelly Gold, a long-time board member at the Center, writes:
Saturday night was when the work clothes were stashed away and the party garb came out. Saturday night meant music, mayhem and moonshine. Saturday night bore witness to an "alchemy of artistic experiments". Intrigued? We hope so.... We're staging a not-so-hostile takeover of the entire Phil Mechanic Building in the River Arts District from 8pm until midnight. All you have to do is bring your best party self, grab some friends and allow us to wine you (well--beer you, thanks to Wedge Brewing!), dine you and fill your dance card. You'll also have the opportunity to purchase pre-sale tickets for the first Saturday Nights at Black Mountain College event, taking place at Camp Rockmont (the former BMC campus) in November.
Rumor has it tonight's festivities will even include poetry! I'm taking along a folder of new work, just in case. Should be a fine way to spend a rainy night.
