The Campus

Welcome to The Bascom: a six-building, six-acre campus in Highlands, North Carolina. Special features include an 87-foot-long covered bridge entrance called the Will Henry Stevens Bridge; a 2,500 square-foot barn rebuilt for use as the ceramic studio named the Dave Drake Studio Barn; and a central three-story, 27,500-square-foot Main Building by DeWolf Architecture and Lord Aeck & Sargent Architecture. The campus construction team included Ross Landscape Architecture, Ferry, Hayes & Allen Designers (interiors), and Trehel Corporation (construction). Wayne Yonce was a consultant for the reconstruction of historic buildings. In addition to the buildings and art offerings, visitors can enjoy a The Horst Winkler Nature and Sculpture Trail with native flora, a pristine brook with cascading waterfall, and scenic views.
