Reynolda House Museum of American Art is recognized as a Winston-Salem icon and a rare gem among the nation’s cultural institutions. The Museum preserves and interprets an exceptional collection of art by America’s most noted artists, on view in an incomparable setting: the 1917 American Country Place-era home of Katharine and Richard Joshua (R. J.) Reynolds. Spanning 250 years of painting, prints, sculpture, photography and video art, the collection includes important works of art by Albert Bierstadt, William Merritt Chase, Frederic Edwin Church, Chuck Close, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Georgia O’Keeffe and more. In addition to its collection of fine art, Reynolda House also holds decorative arts and Reynolda Estate archive collections, and mounts stunning exhibitions from all periods in the Charles and Mary Babcock Wing, which opened in 2005. The complete Reynolda experience includes Reynolda Gardens, composed of formal gardens, walking trails and natural wetlands, and Reynolda Village, now an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants in many of the estate’s original buildings.
Established in 1967 and now affiliated with Wake Forest University, Reynolda House will mark two anniversaries in 2017 — the 50th anniversary of its founding and the 100th anniversary of the completion of the Reynolda Estate. Summer 2017 will commence a yearlong celebration of both these milestones with landmark exhibitions, inspiring new visitor programs, and memorable special events for the local community and beyond.
