VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
Ming Ching Wang
We are pleased to announce that Ming Ching Wang is the Desert Art Center Volunteer of the Month for January. As well as volunteering his time helping with events and photographing our gallery exhibits, Ching is a graphic designer and created our beautiful new brochure!
Ching was born in the town Yingge in Taiwan and studied graphic design at Yuan-Ze University. After working as a video editor, he backpacked in Australia and Tasmania. This immersion in nature opened a new door where he saw the earth as vital and alive, a living being to be honored. Here he began painting.
Ching believes global events and personal stories can be digested and translated into beauty through art. “There are unending sad stories and one must accept and move on. This is done most potently through art.”
Ching believes art must be seen, explored and talked about. Don’t miss exploring his translucent works in the Desert Art Center Gallery and his show in the gallery on April 3, 2020.
