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 “Goodbye Solo” (2008)
Goodbye Solo is the story of Solo, a kindhearted 34-year-old Senegalese taxi driver in North Carolina. He is hired by William, a tough 70-year-old white southerner, to drive him in two weeks time to a mountaintop from which William plans to jump to his death. Solo decides to charm his way into becoming William’s friend, and this odd couple’s unexpected friendship grows. Now all Solo has to do is change the old man’s mind before the two weeks are up.
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.
