Many people relocate to or choose to stay in Winston-Salem because of the cultural opportunities the City of Arts and Innovation has to offer. In addition to the bustling Downtown Arts District, with its Gallery Hops and public art installations, there are two highly acclaimed art exhibitions running concurrently in Winston-Salem. The abundance and variety of arts in Winston Salem is one of the unique features that makes our city so interesting and unique.
Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA)
The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) is presenting an exhibition entitled Graphic Design: Now in Production. The exhibition is co-organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, and the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York. Graphic Design features works of design in magazines, newspapers, books, and posters produced since the year 2000, as well as exploring the storytelling potential of film and television titling sequences and the transformation of raw data into compelling information narratives. The exhibition, which opened in October, 2013, will continue through this weekend and can be viewed at SECCA Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 1pm-5-pm.
Reynolda House Museum of Art
Just down the road, the highly-anticipated American Moderns 1910-1960: From O’Keefe to Rockwell opened earlier this month at the Reynolda House Museum of American Art. Organized by the Brooklyn Museum, Moderns features 53 paintings and four sculptures from the most well-known artists of the Modern movement, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove, Grandma Moses, Joseph Stella, and Norman Rockwell. This exhibition will be installed in the Mary and Charlie Babcock Wing Gallery until May 2014, and can be viewed during regular museum hours. Reynolda House Museum of American Art will also be offering a variety of special events related to American Moderns throughout the Spring.
