Reynolda House Offers Free Admission for Educators

by YES! Weekly staff

Reynolda House Museum of American Art will offer free weekend admission to teachers and other employees of public and private K-12 schools in North Carolina during the month of August. Called “Educator Weekends,” the promotion is made possible in part by one of the museum’s 2016 sponsors, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Carolinas Realty.

“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Carolinas Realty and our sales associates are grateful for the important contributions that teachers and other school employees make to the quality of life in Greater Winston-Salem and throughout North Carolina,” said Tommy Camp, president and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Carolinas Realty. “We are pleased to sponsor Educator Weekends and welcome educators from across the state to Reynolda House for free admission.” “Education is at the core of what we do,” added Phil Archer, the museum’s Betsy Main Babcock Director of Program and Interpretation. “Over the past six months, we’ve seen a 25% increase in K-12 field trips, and these free weekends are a wonderful way for us to say ‘thank you’ to all the people who make sure that arts and culture are part of a child’s education.” “Educator Weekends” will offer free admission to educators on Saturdays and Sundays in August starting Aug. 6 and ending Aug. 28. To receive free admission, teachers and other school employees should simply identify the school where they work upon arrival at the museum’s front desk. Admission for guests of educators is $14 for adults, and free for children, students, members of the museum and members of the military. Admission includes a self-guided tour of the 1917 historic home of R.J. and Katharine Reynolds, featuring the museum’s American art collection on view throughout the home. Reynolda House recently opened a new space on the second floor of the house to display more works from the collection. New works on view include Lyonel Feininger’s “Rainbow II,” Fairfield Porter’s “Keein in the Reflected View,” Arthur Dove’s “Dancing” and Yasuo Kuniyoshi’s “Still Life.” One small, featured exhibition is on view in the house galleries: “Living with Beauty: Works on Paper from a North Carolina Collection.” For more information on “Educator Weekends,” contact Reynolda House by email at or by phone 336.758.5150.
