On our way to Asheville and we stopped here for lunch. We were seated at this lovely sun porch table. We ordered the crab cake sandwich and spinach/arugula salad. Both were delicious. Looking forward to eating here again.

I recently visited this beautiful museum tucked near Pack Square in downtown Asheville to see the Bauhaus 100 exhibit. The Bauhaus began 100 yrs. ago in Weimar Germany and when it closed in 1933 a few of its members emigrated to the US. Some of those artists, architects, dancers etc. came to Black Mountain College. The museum itself is a gem: beautiful galleries, relaxed atmosphere and genial guides to answer questions etc. The exhibit was well executed with wonderful pieces associated with the College and its Bauhaus teachers. I was impressed enough that I joined as a member and look forward to coming back in the future to see the changing exhibitions. Definitely worth coming here to see part of Asheville’s history and that of Black Mountain College.

This museum is a gem. Never knew this college existed and it played such a big part in progressive, responsible activism in the society of the mid 20th century. If the names Albert Einstein, Merce Cunningham, Cy Twombly, Robert Raushenburg and Buckminster Fuller are familiar to you, you probably want to check this out.

The two floors of this former retail building at the east end of Asheville’s historic downtown house a real gem - a window into the cultural avant garde of America from the 1930s to the 1950s. The space now occupied by a nearby summer camp once housed the experimental Black Mountain College, a place that many American artists and writers of that time are connected to. There were two excellent exhibits during our visit in early April - black and white photos by Aaron Siskind, who used photography to explore abstract expressionism, America’s biggest contribution to the human spirit in the past 100 years - and an exhibit about Black Mountain College itself, replete with stories of this small community’s struggles and successes. I was gobsmacked, this was so inspiring and illuminating, the highlight of our two day visit to Asheville.

Now located at one end of College St, the Black Mountain Museum currently has an exhibit of Jacob Lawrence's work from the summer of 1946. This is a terrific collection of Lawrence's paintings, as well as correspondence, photographs, and two contemporary "interpretations" of his art. It is well worth a visit--plan at least an hour.
