Bad Tape Night and another opportunity to get down with BMCM+AC and the MAP

BAD TAPE NIGHT with Dr. Awesome:

Off the MAP for November

Tuesday October 27th 9pm-11pm $3 cover charge.

Bobo Gallery, 22 Lexington Ave, Asheville

Join Jason Holland from the Dr Awesome show for an evening of the worst video he can muster. Expect the unexpected, but my guess is there will be some bad training films, bad commercials and bad public access shows. But that's just a guess. You'll have to show up to find out what all the hubub is about.

Perhaps this Off the MAP event should come with a warning. Side effects may include: offended morals, abdominal pain and cramping, blurry vision, bleeding from the eyes, cluster migraines, irregular heatbeat, and vomiting.


BMCMAC & the MAP team up for another great party!

Saturday November 7th 8pm- Midnight

Phil Mechanic Studios, 109 Roberts St Asheville

Back by popular demand! The MAP and The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center will sponsor WHAT’S HAPPENING?!, a fundraiser dance party in the heart of the River Arts District of Asheville. This exciting event will raise money for the Museum’s “Living Legacy: Living Artists of Black Mountain College” exhibition series, and is part two of the official kick-off celebration to announce an exciting new series of Saturday Night Events at the original dining hall of the Black Mountain College. 

Wedge Microbrewery will once again provide their most excellent, handcrafted beer. Come early to enjoy some nibbles and to view the art installation of BMCM+AC board member, Linda Larsen, downstairs in the Flood Gallery. There will also be a salon in the upstairs library, hosted by Jolene Mechanic, where you can learn more about the college, our organizations, and our exciting upcoming events series.  More surprises are in the works—many will not be revealed until you arrive.  At the last party, a Theremin station, an open mic and a projection show, courtesy of Gene Felice, were all impromptu additions.  The new spin for this party: funk, soul and rock &roll.  Come prepared to get your groove on (and support some great local arts groups!). Get on the good foot!   


Wray Bowling, a recent graduate, is a highly skilled digital artist and computer graphics programmer. Recent experiments have included digital puppetry, realtime shaders, multi-projector installation, and match-move compositing.

The 8th Annual Blender Conference was held this October 23-25 in Amsterdam and Wray was there to present and represent western North Carolina. Blender is a free open source 3D content creation suite which is available for all operating systems. Wray's talk was a review of his techniques for digital puppetry using Blender and Open Sound Control.


These are the organizations we have been collaborating with and we want you to know that they support The MAP.
