Our first of two February book club selections is 1969: The Year Everything Changed by Rob Kirkpatrick. This special book club event coincides with our newest exhibit 1969: Reflection & Reimaginaton — Celebrating 60 years of the Mark H. Reece Collection of Student-Acquired Contemporary Art. This special exhibit runs through June 2023 and features work purchased by Wake Forest University students in New York City during a 1969 art-buying trip. We are grateful for Wake Forest University Art Collection for making this exhibition possible.
