The GI Bill of Rights adopted John Andrew Rice and Theodore Dreier's experimental curricula and this was formulated at Black Mountain College. This colleage was found to be different compared to other mainstream colleges. This allowed Arthur Penn to attend college as it meant that he was already paid for. Black Mountain College was established in 1933 as a result of the rebellion and the Depression and it catered to the disenfranchised. The school was able to attract and build various iconoclasts that would provide change and inspiration to the world for the remainder of the century. Sadly it closed twenty-three years later. During Penn's stay at the college in 1947, the Bauhaus were defeated by the Nazis, so some of them went to the States. In America, the Bauhaus were perceived as a gain. Because their credentials fell short and they were thus denied positions at various colleges, the Bauhaus artists opted to return to Black Mountain College.
