One more pre-posted blog entry before Move-In 🙂
This past Friday I went to the opening of the Georgia O’Keeffe – Living Modern exhibit at Reynolda House. If you are coming to campus to move your student in, please consider buying tickets and seeing this exhibition. It’s really special.
The exhibition is a combination of her artwork, photographs of O’Keeffe, and some of her clothing, shoes, and other items that tell the story of her life and art. It is a beautifully-curated collection, with the added benefit of being dispersed throughout the historic Reynolda House, so you get to see the O’Keeffe exhibit, the permanent collection of American art, and the historic house at once. Especially for those families who are new to Wake Forest and Winston-Salem, Reynolda House is a must-see.
You are allowed to take non-flash photography at the exhibit, so here are a couple pictures of what I saw And if you can’t squeeze it in now at Move-In, consider returning at some point in the fall (it’s open through November 19th). Family Weekend would also be a great time, and the Museum has reserved a block of tickets just for families! Use the password WFUFAMILY to purchase tickets through the special WFU block online here. I am told there are still tickets available for general admission and the exclusive curator’s tour of the exhibition (tickets for that are online here using the same password).
