We Are Happy to Serve You continues at Lump which transforms from a grassroots DIY space to a community supported non-profit project space. Founded by Bill Thelen and Med Byrd, Lump began as an artist run gallery in 1996. Over the past twenty years, Bill, Med, and artists of Team Lump have served the NC community providing space for thought-provoking art, while acting as a pipeline for conversation between North Carolina and the larger contemporary art world. This February we celebrate Lump and kickstart the next twenty years with what we believe are required viewings.
