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 and greatly appreciated.
Project Re-Entry: From Stigma to Acceptance

In coordination with our temporary exhibition, Release: From Stigma to Acceptance we are hosting a discussion featuring staff from Project Re-Entry along with Wake Forest University Professor Lisa Blee and members of her student group that developed the exhibition.
Project Re-Entry assists former offenders throughout various stages of the criminal justice process — offering programs designed to meet the needs of individuals re-adapting to life following a prison sentence. “Release” challenges our preconceived notions about former offenders.
