The Blowing Rock Art and History Museum is a non-profit organization located at 159 Chestnut Street (on the corner of Chestnut and Main streets) in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, a small village nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its mission is to promote visual arts and history and to celebrate the rich heritage of the mountains. Organized in 1999 in response to a generous offer of Elliott Dangerfield artwork, the museum was incorporated in January 2001, and received its 501(c)3 non-profit status from the IRS in May 2002. It opened to the public in October 2011.
Current Exhibitions include: The Village of Blowing Rock: Exploring our History (Opened August 31, 2017), Outsiders: The Inside Story of Folk Art (December 1, 2018 - May 5, 2019), Farm, Forage, and Feast: High Country Foodways (December 1, 2018 - April 20, 2019), Gail Haley's Jack Tales: New Acquisitions to the Collection (December 6, 2018 - March 23, 2019).
