Things have been busy here at our little museum, and 2014 is shaping up to be a very exciting year.
Plans are moving forward for our collaborative exhibit with UNC School of the Arts, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the possibilities. Co-curator Mike Wakeford (History professor at UNCSA) and myself (Chris Jordan) met with Design and Production student Michael Harbeck last week and I am incredibly optimistic that this talented young man will be able to create an innovative and inspiring musuem space. Additionally, NWM’s 2014 Salon Series started last month with a fantastic discussion on Winston-Salem’s pre-integration African American community, and we look forward to our other great programs coming up.
We’ve been getting a lot of attention in the last several weeks; thank you to WFDD’s Triad Arts Up Close, UNCTV’s NC Weekend, The Chronicle, and Winston-Salem Journal for the great press:
