How To Get Tickets for Georgia O’Keeffe:
Living Modern
Reynolda House will kick off its centennial year with the landmark exhibition Georgia
O’Keeffe: Living Modern, opening August 19. This exhibition explores how the artist’s
modern sensibility saturated her art, her life, her homes, and her carefully fashioned
public (and private) personas. Reynolda House is the exhibition's only venue south of
New York.
Wake Forest University faculty and staff will receive free admission for themselves and
a guest, but the Museum is requesting advance reservation of timed entry tickets.
Tickets for the exhibition go on sale Tuesday, May 30 at 9 a.m. Due to anticipated de-
mand and to provide the best experience possible, admission will be based on timed
entry tickets. Several entry times will be available for each day, and Reynolda House
will extend its hours on Thursday until 8 p.m. to accommodate visitors. Both advance
purchase of tickets and reservation of tickets for free visitors are strongly encouraged
to ensure admission. Tickets will be available online at reynoldahouse.org/
