The Blisses and Black Mountain College


Black Mountain College: Shaping Craft + Design is a comprehensive and comprehensible traveling exhibition about the revolutionary experimental  liberal arts college (1933-57) that continues to be influential in education and the visual, performing and literary arts even though it closed 57 years ago. This absorbing show includes ceramics, textiles, furniture, sculpture, paintings, printed material and ephemera as well as video clips. It is now at the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University through February and has been adapted by curator Katie Lee Koven, director of the Harrison, to include artwork from the NEHMA collection by students and faculty from Black Mountain College, including Robert Bliss and Anna Campbell Bliss.
