EXHIBITIONS
A SELF IN THE REMAKING:
Katharine Smith Reynolds Johnston
Opening July 30
Master Bedroom Gallery
Katharine Smith Reynolds Johnston, circa 1921. Estate Archives.
The astounding accomplishments of Reynolda's founder Katharine Smith Reynolds make it all too easy to forget that she had her own complex needs, yearnings, and vulnerabilities. A Self in the Remaking explores who Katharine was as a woman, which has often been overshadowed by her work as a businesswoman and social reformer.

The exhibition features 45 objects, including historic costumes, photographs, and manuscripts, many on display for the first time, pulled from the collections in the Reynolda House Archives and the Z. Smith Reynolds Library Special Collections and Archives at Wake Forest University.
