UPDATE: New Winston Museum is proud to partner with Forsyth County’s Association of Visitor Attractions and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools for The Amazing Summer ESCAPE Challenge, an innovative family engagement initiative that reduces summer leaning loss by encouraging students and families to participate in summer learning activities throughout the community, all summer long. Participants can gain points by visiting New Winston Museum and completing a Winston-Salem history themed Scavenger Hunt. You can click here for information on The Amazing Summer ESCAPE Challenge and to find out how to participate. (This Program runs from June 21 – August 22, 2014)
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. ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨
