Winston-Salem: The City of Arts and Innovation

Winston-Salem deserves its title as the City of Arts and Innovation. Whether you live here or are just visiting, you’ll feel right at home in Winston-Salem’s vibrant visual and performing arts community. There’s no shortage of things to do and places to explore.

You might enjoy a Gallery Hop in the downtown Arts District or take in a film at a/perture Cinema on Fourth Street. You’ll gain inspiration from SECCA (Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art) and Reynolda House Museum of American Art.

For the foodies, the city has a lively culinary scene and there are several local vineyards and breweries within driving distance. UNCSA maintains its own presence in downtown Winston-Salem with the 1,300-seat Stevens Center, which is home to many of the school’s performances. There are huge benefits to visiting and living in a charming and cultured Southern town like Winston-Salem.
