Exhibitions of Thomas Day’s Work

Many people have expressed interest in seeing actual examples of Thomas Day’s work. Here’s a list of some exhibit and tour opportunities:

  • The North Carolina Museum of History (NCMH) has a collection of approximately 30 pieces of Day furniture contributed to the museum by Winston-Salem Delta Fine Arts and North Carolina members of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. The museum is planning a major traveling exhibit of Day’s work for 2007.
  • Tours are periodically offered by the Thomas Day House/ Union Tavern Restoration, Inc. Committee. This group is in the process of restoring The Union Tavern, Thomas Day’s home and workplace.
  • There is a Thomas Day sofa on exhibit at Stagville Plantation in Durham, North Carolina.
  • Several pieces of Thomas Day furniture can be viewed at the Greensboro Historical Museum and also at the Alamance County Historical Museum.

  1. Hello,

    We may have a Thomas Day Empire Dresser. Please note the listing above. Could you advise us if this might be one of his works?
