Sept. 8, 2007 - Dec. 30, 2007
On September 8, 2007, Reynolda House will open Wings of Adventure: Smith Reynolds and the Flight of 898 Whiskey. The exhibition examines the golden age of aviation in America, the role that the Reynolds family played in popularizing this growing pastime, and Smith Reynolds' daring flight from London to Hong Kong in 1931-32. The exhibition and related programs will also explore the impact of aviation on the national imagination and on cultural fields from film to literature to art. The highlight of the exhibition will be the installation of a 1930 S-56 Savoia Marchetti aircraft in our Babcock Gallery.
