WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Reynolds Corporate art collection sale begins Friday morning with access to more than 3,000 items that have come from Reynolds offices all over the world — some of them dating back 100 years.
From framed and autographed art to precious china and the original tobacco press with an 1898 patent attached, the items have all been sitting in Reynolds storage areas until the company decided that it was running out of space.
The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County is selling the items for the company over the weekend. The proceeds are intended to benefit the local arts community.
The sale will take place from Friday to Sunday in the Milton Rhodes Art Center in downtown Winston-Salem. There will be a $5 admission fee.
Items range in price from several dollars to several thousand dollars.
