Outside of the Auburn area but on Twitter? You can follow #JCSMsymposium on Thursday, October 18 at 5 pm for the "Art Interrupted: Reinterpreting Advancing American Art" symposium. The keynote speaker is Dr. Serge Guilbaut, Professor of History at University of British Columbia. He is a scholar of post WWII American and French history, including the history of post-war Franco-American relations as they relate to art. 

High school students Heather Connelly and Katie Kirk will perform their bronze award-winning presentation, "A Tragedy of Errors: America's Hypocritical Reaction to Artistic Diplomacy" on October 13, 2012 at 10:30 am at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University. The pair took home national honors for National History Day 2012. Hear more from these two students by reading the full press release. 

JCSM hosted a group of young "LeRoy Davidsons" at Art Club to see which images from "Advancing American Art" they would select to represent U.S. culture abroad.

"Art Interrupted" clips

Friday, 31 August, 2012

As we get closer to "Art Interrupted" opening at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, news stories are starting to appear. This one from the Auburn Plainsman, the student-run newspaper at Auburn, focuses on the film series associated with the exhibition, titled "Life Interrupted." The University of Georgia's student newspaper, the Red & Black, also mentions the exhibition, in an article about the impact of the National Endowment for the Arts on campus. "Art Interrupted," as you can see throughout this site, received a significant portion of its funding from the NEA.

The Montgomery Advertiser covered a recent meeting by the Jules Collins Smith Museum Capital Society, which seeks to raise funds enabling the purchase of art by Alabama artists for JCSM's collection. Marilyn Laufer, JCSM director, was in attendance and highlighted the upcoming opening of "Art Interrupted." Don't forget to mark your calendars for the opening reception a week from today (Sept. 7).
