I love working with the staff and collection at Reynolda. I grew up in Winston-Salem and to get a "back-stage" pass to one of my favorite places is a dream come true. I wasn't quite sure what I would be doing as a docent, and it turns out a little of everything! The house has such a wonderful and rich history and to pair it with one of the greatest and most diverse collections of American art is unbelievable. No matter where you look in the home, and it is truly a home, you see a snap-shot of American life at the turn of the century, woven with the changing scene of American art. I can not praise the collection, or the staff, enough. Reynolda is truly an unique experience, and it varies every time you walk through the front door.
