About the Reynolda Fellow
Art historian Wendy Katz, Ph.D., joined Reynolda House Museum of American Art in August as the recipient of the year-long Reynolda Fellowship, funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Reynolda is a partner with Wake Forest University in the fellowship, which was created to advance cross-disciplinary learning across campus and in the community. Katz’s research and teaching will enrich the interpretation of historic Reynolda, including its relationship to the Reynolds family’s multi-faceted legacy, its impact on Winston-Salem and its contemporary connectivity to student learning at Wake Forest.
Katz is on leave from her position as Professor of Art History at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln while at Reynolda.

The three-year grant supports a program that focuses on expanding interdisciplinary humanities research, teaching practices and public scholarship.
