{Re}Happening #1

Kelly Gold sends along information about the {Re}Happening event coming up this Saturday at Camp Rockmont, the old Black Mountain College campus. Sounds like it'll be great fun:

{Re}HAPPENING: a feast for the senses
Celebrates Innovation & Collaboration in the Arts
Media Arts Project and Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center Collaborate on Joint Fundraiser / Event Series

The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC) & the Media Arts Project (MAP) invite the WNC community to participate in an evening of art, performance, music & dinner on Saturday, March 20th in the original dining hall of the former Black Mountain College (now Camp Rockmont). The remarkable creative community that existed at BMC from 1933 to 1957 inspires this unique fundraising event. Their Saturday night festivities usually included art, music, dance and performance, creating the foundation that we hope to build upon. In Partnership with the MAP and its community of artistic innovators, this BMCM +AC event pays tribute to Black Mountain College by bringing its dynamic energy into the present day.

Members of the Media Arts Project and the greater arts community are lining up to participate. New media work from Scott Furr, Mark Koven, Megan McKissack, Gene Felice, Mark Hanf, Marnie Muller, Lorraine Walsh, Lei Han & Wray Bowling will be on display. Dancers Julie Becton Gillum, Sara Baird & Cilla Vee Life Arts will perform. Sculpture and ceramics will be shown from Sean Pace aka “Jinx” & Mellissa Terrezza. Performance artists such as Poetix Vanguard, Eve Warnock & Tina Matthews, Elisa Faires and puppeteer Madison J. Cripps will be part of the evening. Sound installation and performance will be created by Wayne Kirby, Greg Olson, Chandra Shukla, Dave Hamilton, Kima Moore, Salvatore D’Angio, Ross Gentry & Chris Ballard. Guest chef Mark Rosenstein will represent the culinary arts. With over thirty artists in attendance, it promises to be a unique evening of collaboration and invention.

{Re}HAPPENING: a feast for the senses launches a new event series that will draw from the wide range of artistic talents that make WNC an extraordinary community. At the March 20 event, the evening will consist of two halves. The first half begins at 6 p.m. with a cocktail social, leading into a seated “family style” dinner served at 7 p.m. Various forms of art and performance will be take place throughout the cocktail hour and dinner. The second half begins at 9 p.m. and includes drinks (beer, wine & non-alchoholic), light appetizers and an extended evening of art, performance & dancing. Tickets for the entire evening including dinner are $40 ($35 for BMCM+AC and MAP members). For the second half (art, drinks & snacks) only, the ticket price is $15 ($10 for members). The LaZoom Bus will be running a shuttle service throughout the evening from downtown Asheville to the BMC campus and back for an additional $5. Reservations are suggested since seating is limited.

Sponsors for the event include Vinnie's Neighborhood Italian, Pisgah Brewing, Filo Bakery, Divine Wine, Chai Pani, French Broad Chocolates, Ultimate Ice Cream Co., Early Girl Eatery, Short Street Cakes, Nona Mia, Izzy's Coffee and Mountain Valley Spring Water.
