Gallery Talk
5:30 PM
Election Day

Show your “I Voted” sticker on Election Day and get free admission to Reynolda House Museum of American Art’s gallery talk on the exhibition "Virtue, Vice, Wisdom & Folly: The Moralizing Tradition in American Art."

The talk, led by the Reynolda House Managing Curator Allison Slaby, is at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 2, Election Day.

Regular admission is $5 for non-members; free for museum members and students.

"Virtue, Vice, Wisdom, & Folly" features 19th-century genre art, or scenes of everyday life. The exhibition is divided into sections: Life in the Country, Men and Women, Family Life, Politics and Patriotism, and Life in the City.

Slaby, who organized the exhibition from paintings in the Reynolda House collections and loans from prominent museums across the southeast, will discuss how our sense of national character derives its meaning from these historic images of everyday family life, chores, social gatherings, political rallies, holidays, and street life.
