I have a story for you to read!

For those who may not know me too well, I have worked at the Crisp Museum on Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus since august of 2021. I have loved working there and have had many different jobs in my time there but always doing something enjoyable. Since I work there and have lived in the dorms on River Campus since I have worked there, I always know about the events happening at the museum.

Speaking of the museum: here’s a picture from the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum Faceboook Page:

The next section is a word for word copy of the part of the story I’m included in but go check out the arrow’s website to read the full article.

Senior art major Rebecca Byington was excited to hear about this event, as she has been making jewelry since she was 5 years old.

“The best part is that it’s free,” Byington said. “It’s great that the museum can fund things like this, you know, it’s very accessible, affordable and enjoyable.”

Byington said she appreciates that the Crisp Museum provides these kinds of experiences for students.

“I really want people to understand that the Crisp Museum is a really great place, and a lot of colleges don’t have a nice place like this. We have the art gallery, and then the history gallery, and we have these events multiple times a week, whether it’s paint nights or good-ole craft events like this one,” Byington said.

“There’s so much opportunity, there’s so much community here, and I think people just need to come out and experience it, and it’s a great place to make friends.”
