This exhibit examines the history and legacy of the experimental educational institution known as Black Mountain College that was nestled in the Swannanoa Valley of North Carolina from 1933 to 1957. The school's two picturesque locations in this area served to inspire the creativity of both faculty and students, and fostered a unique atmosphere for a variety of artists such as dancers, musicians, photographers, painters, and poets.

Katúah: Bioregional Journal of the Southern Appalachians

Katúah: Bioregional Journal of the Southern Appalachians, later simplified to Katúah Journal, was published from 1983 to 1993. A quarterly publication, it was focused on the bioregion of former Cherokee land in Appalachia. The early issues of the journal explain the meaning of the Cherokee name, Katúah, and why the editors wanted to view the world through a bioregional lense, rather than political boundaries. A volunteer production, the editors took a holistic view in tackling social, environmental, mental, spiritual, and emotional topics of the day, many of which are still relevant.
