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.

Discover Auburn Book Talk

Shot in Alabama:  A History of Photography 1839-1941

Frances Osborn Robb

Date and Time:  Wednesday, April 19 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Ralph Brown Draughon Library, Ground Floor Auditorium

Presented chronologically - from the first photograph taken in the state to the appearance of cameras as ordinary possessions in mid-twentieth century households - this book closely examines a wide spectrum of vernacular photography:  Alabama-made photographs of everyday people and places, the photos that fill shoeboxes and dresser drawers, a vast array of images against which Alabama's more familiar iconography can be measured.

Reception and book signing to follow.

Sponsored by Auburn University Libraries.
