Victorian home holds art treasures, history lessons: Jan Detter’s home has become part of the syllabus she uses for the creative-thinking course she teaches at Wake Forest University. She uses artistic treasures she has collected to demonstrate how people express themselves creatively across the globe and through the ages. Although her collection is an eclectic blend of treasures in textiles and folk art, her passion for visual literacy is evident. Twin swan planters greet visitors at local artist’s home in downtown Winston-Salem. “We had lived in a regular neighborhood in Clemmons for 10 years and needed a smaller space” Detter said. “I fell in love with the house the moment I walked in and saw the backyard.”
