Join Reynolda House staff over a five-week period (Wednesdays at 4 p.m.) for an  exploration of America’s origin story through fine art. Three of the five featured artists in Paul Staiti’s Of Arms and Artists: The American Revolution Through Painters’ Eyes–Charles Wilson Peale, Gilbert Stuart, and John Singleton Copley–are represented in the Museum’s collection. The collective stories of these artists from the revolutionary past will offer a deeper understanding of our democracy’s origins and national identity today.
