Favorite art book 25 Jun. 2011
By Andy Shuping - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This...this is my all time favorite art book. And I'd own a copy of it if it wasn't out of print and being sold for 200+ dollars.

A lot of folks are familiar with the Black Mountain area, but how many are familiar with its artistic past and the role it played on the national level? Artists from all areas, visual, performing, dance, music, sculpture came together to teach others and hone their craft. They created a school that attracted some of the best in the world and the work produced by them was mind blowing. This book captures it all in candid and posed photographs with easy to read history of this remarkable place.

This is a must read for any fan of art, regardless of time period or type. It shows what can happen when people can come together and create.

It is astonishing that this institution did so much for American Art. Fascinating topic and well recounted.
