New for 2014, the Asheville Art Museum is offering this experience for free on the first Wednesday of each month from 3-5 p.m. (That's tomorrow!)
Visitors can expect to enjoy works from several collections and exhibitions, including the Black Mountain College Collection, which highlights art from the experimental campus that operated nearby from 1933 to 1957 and attracted such minds as Josef and Anni Albers and Merce Cunningham.
