The Arts at Black Mountain College.

Written by Mary Emma Harris.
MIT Press, Cambridge, 1987. 650 pp., 282 illus., 9x12".

Growing out of the progressive education movement was an educational experiment which had a profound influence on the course of American culture--the Black Mountain College in the foothills of North Carolina. With a faculty and student body that reads like a who's who of American art, this small, financially troubled institution brought together the talent of artists, writers, and teachers such as Albers, Feininger, Kline, de Kooning, Motherwell, Newhall, Cage, and Gropius with that of students Rauschenberg, Chamberlain, Noland, Twombly, Williams, and du Plessix Gray, among others. Harris has produced a carefully researched history of the college and its extraordinary teachers, students, and curriculum to create a portrait of the birthplace of some of this century's most important ideas in art.
