Legacy Weekend • April 9-12, 2015
Legacy Weekend, now in its second year, offers an experience rich in Arrowmont history, Appalachian culture, arts and heritage, and the wonderful natural setting of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Arrowmont supports Friends of the Smokies. If you're not a member, please consider joining. If you are a member of Friends, tell the Arrowmont registrar when you register for a Legacy Weekend workshop. For Legacy Weekend workshops, Arrowmont will donate 25% of all tuition paid by Friends members back to Friends of the Smokies. You'll gain terrific craft skills and experience while supporting two of East Tennessee's most important institutions.
Legacy Weekend will also offer new and interdisciplinary programming never before offered at Arrowmont. We plan to integrate nightly activities and programs into the weekend with guest speakers, musical performances, social gatherings, gallery openings, and explorations off campus. Many of the classes also culminate into events and performance to encourage interaction among all weekend participants and the campus community.
Also during Legacy Weekend, Arrowmont's Annual Artists-in- Residence Exhibition opens in the Sandra J. Blain Galleries. Students, instructors and guests are invited to the opening reception on Friday, April 10, 2015, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
