AUBURN – The Auburn University Faculty Exhibition is on display at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art through May 30. This exhibition reflects the individual interests and skills of the diverse studio faculty in Auburn’s Department of Art and features paintings, sculpture, works on paper, ceramics and other media.
Exhibitions of faculty art are held periodically at the museum, and provide opportunities not only for the community to see the art created at Auburn University, but also for art students to see the close relationship between the classroom and application.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Tuesday lectures will be given March 14-May 30 at 2:30 p.m. in the museum auditorium or galleries during which art historians will share their expertise.
