Conversations Prompted by Art from JCSM’s Permanent Collection
Thursday, July 13, 2017
4:30 p.m.
Ralph B. Draughon Library
Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium (on the ground floor of Draughon Library)

Join the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art (JCSM) and Auburn University Libraries tomorrow at 4:30pm for the inaugural talk in a summer series of timely conversations about diversity and greater understanding. Prompted by objects from JCSM’s permanent collection, each conversation will begin with an introduction by an art historian and a member of the Auburn University community. Our intention is to let the art initiate discussions that allow us to understand our differences and recognize the value of our diverse community.
