Can you feel a tinge of fall in air yet? We sure can. Follow these 3 simple steps to ensure a memorable season.
1. Get your ticket for Grant Wood and the American Farm - Opening tomorrow, 9/9!

Tickets are already on sale! Be one of the first to see this exclusive exhibition only at Reynolda House. Grant Wood and the American Farm is on view through December 31.

This exhibition traces the evolution of the American farm from 1850 to 1950 through 35 works of art carefully selected from 17 museums and institutions around the country. We give particular attention to the Regionalist artist Grant Wood as well Winslow Homer, Childe Hassam, Thomas Hart Benton, Arthur Dove, Charles Sheeler, and Andrew Wyeth. Antique farm equipment will be on view alongside works of art to bring the farm to life. Find out more about the exhibition here.
 
2. Play, relax, and dine with us at our Harvest Moon Festival.

Date: Thursday, September 15
Time: 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Cost:  Members/students; $10, non-members $15; RAH passes accepted (What's a RAH pass? Learn more!)

Autumn's answer to the Museum's popular Summertime Social, the annual Harvest Moon Festival is a great place to catch a rising star, or two. This year, singer-songwriter Cashavelly Morrison will perform covers and songs from her debut album The Kingdom Belongs to a Child. Savor delicious food trucks, beverages, and lawn games under an autumn sky. Find out more information here.
3. Send us your farm story!

"What's your farm story?" is the question of the season. Grant Wood and the American Farm will likely get you thinking about your experiences on a farm. After viewing the exhibition, take some time to send us your own story or memory about farm life. No recollection is too big or too small to share. Drop us a line or write it down in our comment books at the Museum. 

We look forward to sharing your stories around the Museum and on the web. 

Bonus step: Watch our promotional video on YouTube before it's worldwide debut on September 9. We hope you'll enjoy it!
