Blowing Rock Art and History Museum

A museum of native stone, a mountain of native talent

The Blowing Rock Art & History Museum (BRAHM) expresses a mission of promoting the visual arts and the history and heritage of the mountains through educational programs, exhibitions, and significant permanent collections. 

Given any season in the mountains, that mission can come to life in art club meetings, yoga classes, puppetry workshops, art classes, concerts and curator tours of exhibitions that have ranged from etchings and lithographs to archival photography to great swaths of mountain history.

While not continually on exhibit, the museum’s permanent collection includes a number of works by its “patron artist” Elliott Daingerfield, donated by Cora and LaMont Hudson, a gift that led to the organization of the museum in 1999. It opened to the public in a new building in October 2011. The BRAHM’s permanent collection also includes a selection of glass art made by artists at the Penland School of Crafts, donated by Sonia and Issac Luski, and examples of North Carolina pottery, donated by Elizabeth and Leo Kohn.

The museum offers many educational opportunities for both adults and youth, as well as many special events throughout the year.
