Reynolda House Museum of American Art

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. But how did they come to be at 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:
