Tomorrow, at the ICA in Boston, a really interesting show opens that explores the influential experiment in education and the arts that produced such artistic luminaries as Buckminster Fuller, Cy Twombly, Ruth Asawa, Robert Rauschenberg, and Clara Porset.  Black Mountain College was established in 1933 near Asheville, North Carolina.   This from the ICA website:  “Influenced by the utopian ideals of the progressive education movement, it placed the arts at the center of liberal arts education and believed that in doing so it could better educate citizens for participation in a democratic society.”  The show runs from October 10 through January 24.  You can check out more at the link below:
