Seven years ago, Roger Manley had been on his job as director of N.C. State’s art museum for just a few weeks when he got a piece of news that was both good and bad. The good news was that the Gregg Museum of Art & Design would be moving from its cramped space in State’s Talley Student Center.
The bad news was that there wasn’t yet a new space designated for it – or money to make it happen. That led to a prolonged period of searching and fundraising, followed by a couple of years of construction. But the payoff is finally at hand.
