I spent a great deal of my time as a youth at the Hickory Museum of Art. Learning about the changes in art, and later when returning as an art student. Once out of College I made it a point to come by and offer my services at a volunteer. I was greeted like a member of the family and offered many opportunities to learn and grow. Fundraising events, daily gift shop operations and even some office work. They all gave me not only a great experience for future jobs but also a chance to learn about the art and fatality that showcases it.
