Reynolda House was built in 1917 as the country seat of Richard J. Reynolds, founder of R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. In 1965 it opened to the public as a museum of American art, and in 2002 it became affiliated with Wake Forest University. This April, Reynolda House opens a new 33,000-square foot education and exhibition wing, with visitor center, oral history stations, an exhibition gallery, a two-level auditorium, art library, and education studios. Vanguard Collecting, the inaugural exhibition, running through August 15, showcases the first 25 masterpieces of American painting, including works by Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt, and Thomas Eakins, that made Reynolda House an art museum.
