MAP News: {Re}HAPPENING Plans, ARC Call for Instructors, Blizzard of Art Events

Hello and Happy New Year!

Happy 2011, y’all… it’s the start of something beautiful. For the MAP’s part, we have some new board members that we’re stoked to be working with. And this will be the year of the new as far as the MAP website goes – starting with the addition of guest writers for the blog. We kicked this off with a clever little post from Stu Helm of Cheesy Graphics about the Drone Summit he's putting together this month.

Check it out and stay tuned for more insightful pieces on digital art and life in our little haven in the hills. And let us know if writing is your bag - we are ISO contributors.


Thurs, Jan 27, 5-8pm

The Wine Studio, 169 Charlotte Street - Asheville

$10 covers admission and wine tasting

To warm things up for the {Re}HAPPENING, we’re showcasing art from last year's event at a fundraiser at the Wine Studio. $10 covers your admission and wine tasting. Check out the art and raise a glass with us, and tell us what you'd like to experience at the {Re}HAPPENING this year.

{Re}HAPPENING 2011 Plan

Perhaps the thing we are most excited about for 2011 is the {Re}HAPPENING, which we’re co-producing for the second year with Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center.

This year’s {Re}HAPPENING is scheduled for April 9. Once again we’ll start with a seated dinner, with multi-media, performance and culinary art happening all around. Then we’ll spill out of the dining hall – we have access to more of the original BMC campus this year - and open it up for drinks, dancing and art into the night. Dozens of local restaurants and farms provided the food last year, and more than thirty artists created site-specific art spaces - everything from sculptural video installation, to interactive sculpture, to multimedia-based performance. Images and video from last year’s event – which drew about 400 people! - are at www.rehappening.com. Tickets on sale soon…

ARC Call for Instructors

Congratulations to Arts2People on the opening of the Artist Resource Center, slated for mid-February! "The ARC offers tools to help facilitate and nurture artists in business. This will create a symbiotic relationship between cultural creatives and the greater community," says the lovely Miss Kitty Love, who has worked tirelessly to get the project to this point.

The ARC is currently seeking instructors, so if ya got mad bizness skills that would benefit artists, let them know. www.arts2people.org
