• You probably know Roger Manley, director of the Gregg Museum, as the soft-spoken guy who curates fascinating (and sometimes delightfully quirky) exhibitions. But how much do you know of his peripatetic past? His life as a filmmaker in Paris, climbing mountains in Greece, dancing on stage at ADF, living with a group of Aboriginal people in Australia, or working as a blacksmith? Discover Roger’s story in the new “Meet the Arts NC State Directors” blog.
