Reynolda House Museum of American Art Re-Opens Tuesday, Sept. 18, Offers Evacuees Discounted Admission
Winston-Salem, N.C. — Reynolda House Museum of American Art will resume regular operating hours Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 9:30 a.m. following a temporary closure in response to anticipated conditions associated with Hurricane Florence. The altered schedule was part of many precautions taken by the museum to ensure the safety of Reynolda’s staff, guests, facilities, landscape and collections. The storm caused no significant damage to the museum, gardens or shops.
“Dorothea Lange’s America,” originally scheduled to open at Reynolda on Friday, Sept. 14, will now open Tuesday, Sept. 18. All tickets purchased for Sept. 14-16 will be honored at any time during the exhibition season through Dec. 30.
Reynolda House will offer evacuees from the storm one free admission with each purchased admission through Sunday, Sept. 30. Visitors need only to share their zip code to take advantage of the offer. Admission to Reynolda House is $18 for adults.
Reynolda House is open Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Sunday 1:30-4:30 p.m. Visitors with questions about museum hours, exhibition tickets, or related concerns can contact the museum at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.758.5150.
Reynolda, in Winston-Salem, N.C., is a rare gem among the nation’s cultural institutions and historic greenspaces. The 50-year-old museum at the center of Reynolda’s 180 acres, Reynolda House Museum of American Art, presents a renowned art collection in a historic and incomparable setting: the original 1917 interiors of the country manor of R. J. Reynolds. Spanning 250 years, the collection is an uncompromisingly selective one, a chronology of American art, with each artist represented by one work of major significance. Highlights are: Albert Bierstadt, Mary Cassatt, William Merritt Chase, Frederic Edwin Church, Stuart Davis, Martin Johnson Heade, Alex Katz, Lee Krasner, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, John Singer Sargent and Grant Wood. The collection was assembled by the unerring eye of Barbara Babcock Millhouse, granddaughter of R. J. and Katharine Reynolds. The Reynolda experience includes a free app called Reynolda Revealed; touring exhibitions in the museum’s Mary and Charlie Babcock Wing; formal gardens, conservatory and walking trails of Reynolda Gardens; and more than 25 of the estate’s original buildings repurposed as shops and restaurants in Reynolda Village. Reynolda, located at 2250 Reynolda Road, is adjacent to Wake Forest University. For more information, please visit reynolda.org. Connect at facebook.com/rhmaa and @CurateReynolda.
