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.


May is Historic Preservation Month in Winston-Salem, and New Winston Museum is proud to be one of the event sponsors. Check out all of the events planned throughout the community!
