AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - This local museum is anything but ordinary. Having been to quite a few museums, the local pieces and its connection to such an outstanding school and state makes it one for the books.
On Sunday, the Jule Collins Smith Museum hosted it’s 125 Years of Auburn Women event. This particular event was the museums focus this year for their 1072 exhibition.
Their objective on Sunday’s event was to bring people out to admire the artwork that inspired Auburn or Alabama native women created, and raise money so the museum can purchase the hard work these ladies put into these masterpieces to be admired for years to come.
The gallery features pieces with variations of mediums and tools to bring their inspirations and creative talents to life. I had the pleasure of speaking to Marilyn Fauser, director of the museum, as well as Dennis Harper, the museum’s curator of collections and exhibitions about the event.
The museum hosts a number of administration and staff that hold a true passion for what they do and the works that they display.
If you would like to stop in and see these pieces for yourself or learn about how you can donate to help the museum purchase them, the information can be found on their website.
