Of his Minimalist stripe paintings, Frank Stella said, "What you see is what you see, but the worthwhile qualities of painting are always both visual and emotional, and it's got to be a convincing emotional experience." Immerse yourself in Frank Stella's Double Gray Scramble and examine how this composition impacts you. This Discovery Lesson is for those 2+. Download the lesson here.

Reynolda Salon Series

Inspired by Katharine Smith Reynolds' "salons," Reynolda House Museum of American Art offers a weekly series for digital engagement — from our sofa to yours.

Intentionally designed to stimulate conversations concerning themes of Reynolda's history and the Museum's collection of American Art, anyone who is naturally curious and has access to the internet can join! One week may be a slow looking exercise and the next a writing prompt—you'll find out each Sunday when you open your special invitation.

Like the intellectual gatherings of Katharine's time, each meeting will offer opportunities for creativity and social engagement.

How does it work?
Each Sunday, Manager of Community and Academic Learning Amber Albert will send an email invitation via email to those who have registered that outlines the week's activity &/or identifies a guest host. The following Wednesday afternoon, Amber will convene a Zoom session during which time group members can share their ideas.

Who can participate?
For the benefit of those in the group and their internet connection, we are capping each Wednesday Zoom session to 30 people.
