“The Rowan County Arts Center had offered me a space to exhibit and I always like to give back to my gallery crew when I can. I thought it would be special to exhibit with them as a group,” said Melissa Yungbluth, instructor for the Department of Art & Design and director of the Golding-Yang Gallery. “We don’t often get to do things together outside of installing exhibitions here at the Golding-Yang Gallery. It’s also nice to remind people on occasion to think of the individuals who work so hard to install the shows that they see. I feel incredibly lucky to have had the crew that I did for my first year working at MSU. This is my thank you to them.”
