Movie Review: Game Night

https://www.hcpress.com/boone/movie-review-game-night.html
Feb. 26, 2018. “Game Night” sees its characters playing one of those elaborate role-playing games that’s spread out over several miles and involves a full company of actors. I’m weary of movies with this kind of premise because of the inevitable twist: at some point, we’re going to learn that everything that’s been happening is all part of the game. It’s the same thing with movies about con artists, magicians, or people who meddle in dreams. It’s not that I necessarily mind being played for a fool, I can enjoy some well-planned manipulation, but it just seems like a waste of time when the movie practically announces its intentions so early the way this one does.

TAC Talk: Black Mountain College: 1933-1957, History and Legacy, Feb. 15 at BRAHM

Jan. 29, 2018. This presentation will give an overview of the fascinating story of Black Mountain College and an introduction to the work of the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center in Asheville. Black Mountain College existed for a mere 24 years, but in that short time, the small experimental college in the Appalachian Mountains just outside of Asheville produced a legacy that makes it central to American culture in multiple ways. While often thought of as an art school, in actuality the arts were just one important aspect of an overarching liberal arts education emphasizing the broader area of the humanities. The college’s influence on the arts and education continues to this day.
