I Think I Can. I Think I Can- Go to Reynolda Junction!

My little guy is all about some trains. He is so excited to go to Reynolda House Museum of American Art this weekend, which will become Reynolda Junction from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 26 as it hosts a FREE Community Day. The afternoon will include varieties of activities for kids of all ages themed around trains and inspired by the featured exhibition Trains that Passed in the Night: The Photographs of O. Winston Link.

Visitors will be invited to tour the Museum, pose for a photograph in a set modeled after one of Link’s famous images, enjoy a model train layout on display, observe artists and photographers at work, and watch a documentary about Link and his work. Hands-on art activities will include wax relief trains, multi-media travel posters, luggage tags, boarding passes, and postcards with your own travel-inspired messages.

The free museum day continues at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) just across the street. Families can tour both museums for free, participate in a variety of hands-on art activities, and share in the history of two of Winston-Salem’s historic homes. Music, art, history, and fun come together in these shared, free museum days for the community.
