Blowing Rock Art & History Museum, 159 Ginny Stevens Lane, Blowing Rock, NC 28605


Completed in 1901, Flat Top Manor was the centerpiece of a grand country estate, with 25 miles of carriage roads and an orchard of over 30,000 apple trees. Organized in collaboration with the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, “Modern Visions, Mountain Views” connects Claribel and Etta’s story with the stories of their brother, North Carolina’s “Denim King,” Moses H. Cone, and his wife, Bertha.


Modern Visions, Modern Art: The Cone Sisters in North Carolina and Modern Visions, Mountain Views: The Cones of Flat Top Manor will open to the public in early August 2019. These exhibitions are presented to the community by Wells Fargo. BRAHM offers additional thanks to the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, National Park Service, Baltimore Museum of Art, Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro History Museum, Appalachian State University, Blowing Rock Tourism Development Authority, and the many extended members of the Cone and Lindau families for their enthusiastic support and collaborative efforts.
