Reynolda House Celebrates 10th Anniversary of the Babcock Wing

4:52pm May 06, 2015

Reynolda House in Winston-Salem opened as a museum of art in 1967 in the 62 room, 32,000 square foot original “bungalow” of R.J. and Katherine Smith Reynolds.

It was the finest concentration of American art south of Washington D.C. with dynamic education programs that took place throughout the building. 30 years later a visit by the accreditation committee of the American Association of Museums suggested some ways to make the various components of Reynolda (furniture, art collection, and grounds) more accessible to visitors. The result: The Babcock Wing, now celebrating its 10th year. 

This month’s monthly object talk focuses on the Babcok Wing now in its 10th year. It begins at 2:30 PM on Wednesday, May 6th

David Ford spoke with Reynolda House Director of Collections Management Rebecca Eddins and Director of Public Programs Phil Archer.
