It's time!  The Third Annual {Re}HAPPENING is this Saturday, April 7th at Lake Eden in Black Mountain, from 6pm until midnight.  As most of you know, the event will feature an incredible artist line-up (including our MAP Grant winners!) filling the historic campus of the former Black Mountain College with an evening of performance art, interactive installations, dancing, music and more.

There are two ticket options for the {Re}HAPPENING:

The MAP is looking for local media artists and supporters who are excited about the prospect of building up the Asheville area media arts community and want to contribute their time, energy and resources to making it happen.

We want to see more focus on cutting-edge, forward-thinking and engaging media art in galleries and out on the town, whether it is interactive, sonic, performance-based, or multimedia.  Asheville is known for being an artistic mecca, but we feel that the presence of media arts leaves much to be desired.

The MAP wants to be proactive in encouraging and promoting more media arts activity in our community, so we invite you to join us in developing new and exciting local projects that do so.  Contact us at info@themap.org with details on your interest and any specific knowledge, experience or resources that you might be able to contribute.


On April 6th (the evening before the {Re}HAPPENING!), UNC-Asheville's New Media Department will be holding the opening reception for the 11th Annual Juried Student Exhibition.  The show features student work in 2D and 3D animation, interactive art and design, print design, video art, sonic art, stop motion and installation.

The juror for the show is Evan Meaney, a founding member of the GLI.TC/H art project, former artist in residence at the Experimental Television Center, and assistant professor at the University of Tennessee School of Art.  The reception is at UNC-Asheville's Highsmith Union Gallery from 3 to 6pm on Friday, April 6, and the exhibition will be on display through April 16.  

Stop by and check out at the amazing work our local new media students are doing!  You can read the press release here.
