In addition to our other programs, New Winston Museum presents a free monthly Salon Series featuring a broad range of local historians, artists, writers, musicians, crafts-folk and other specialists. Speakers discuss aspects of their work and their process to find interpersonal connections with their work and the broader community. Light refreshments are provided, and guests are welcome to bring brown bag lunches or dinners to the presentations. Unless otherwise noted, NWM programs are free of charge. Donations are encouraged.
Film Screening of Junebug (2005)
Written and Directed by Winston-Salem’s Angus MacLachlan and Phil Morrison, respectively, Junebug was filmed in the Winston-Salem area and features supporting actress Amy Adams in her first Academy Award nominated role.
Plot summary: A dealer in outsider art threatens the equilibrium of her middle-class in-laws in North Carolina. Madeline is a go-getting art gallery owner from Chicago, recently married to George, a near-perfect Southern beau. When Madeline needs to close a deal with a reclusive North Carolina artist, George introduces her to his family: prickly mother Peg, taciturn father Eugene, cranky brother Johnny, and Johnny’s pregnant, childlike wife Ashley, who is awe-struck by her glamorous sister-in-law. Madeline’s presence exposes the fragile family dynamics as hidden resentments and anxieties surface.

“What is Biotech?”
You’ve heard all about Innovation Quarter and that Winston-Salem has become a leader in Biotech and Biomedical research, but what exactly does that mean? The third and final of our “medicine” focused Salon Series events aims to answer that question. Eric Tomlinson, President of Innovation Quarter, will join us to explain exactly what is going on in the old tobacco district.
NWM “Immigration” Salon Series – Wednesday July 22, 2015 – 5:30pm @Reynolda Manor Branch Library*
The Museum’s third quarter Salon Series will focus on the reception and impact of immigrants in the Winston-Salem community. Starting off the discussion are Leonard Clein and Athena Gallins who will talk about their experiences in an evolving Winston-Salem, situated within the broader history of early Jewish and Greek immigration in the early 1900s.
*Please note – NWM will be in the process of installing a new exhibition in July and will be closed, therefore this event will take place at the Reynolda Manor Branch Library.
