Hold on to Your Seats! "The Art of Seating" Opening Weekend Buzz

By Sarah R. Smith, Director of Marketing & Communications | @SarahatReynolda

The Piedmont Triad is talking about The Art of Seating! We kicked off a decidedly different exhibition for Reynolda House in a decidedly different way this week, as our front patio garden became the game field for a competitive round of musical chairs between local rivals Mt. Tabor High School and Reynolds High School. The cross-country teams, whose runners frequent the trails and grounds of Reynolda for training runs, suited up to sit down. Read more about it from the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System, and enjoy the following compilation of buzz leading up to opening weekend, including this recap of the Members' Opening Celebration.  

Forty local high school student-athletes gathered to help open The Art of Seating.
