The first single-pickup electric guitar? A necktie machine modified to knit the first artificial aorta? Living tissue in a T-Rex bone? All this and more will populate the gallery this spring—objects and stories of discovery, delight, and curiosity that represent the breadth of disciplines at NC State.

This exhibit was researched, curated, and designed by Elise Phinazee (CHASS ’19) and Erin Nicole Delahunty (Design ’20) working in the Libraries this year as part of the Provost‘s Professional Experience Program. It draws from the Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center manuscript collections and university archives, as well as individual colleges and research centers from across NC State. In addition to patents and products, Phinazee and Delahunty wanted to showcase examples from every college. Examples that can't necessarily be copyrighted or commodified, but represent the ideas, values, and problem-solving that affect society in a way that only NC State can.
