Time: 1:00pm

Reynolda House Museum of American Art


Free with Museum admission

Bookending the entrance to Reynolda's Reception Hall, these large palace jars (circa 1900) are decorated completely with a complicated pattern of exotic birds and tree peonies , and more. But how did they come to be a Reynolda? Public programming fellow Allison Thompson presents. 

This series on the first Wednesday of the month features Reynolda House curators, educators, and guests sharing a one-hour, in-depth look at one object in the collections of Reynolda, plus a few surprises. Join us for the entire season:
