We’re looking for help during the Out of the Box exhibition’s official opening on Friday, October 2nd! The event is tailgate-themed for Homecoming weekend and is free and open to the public from 3-7 pm. We’ll have hands-on art activities, tours of the newly-installed sculpture, awesome food available for purchase, and a lot more.
We’ll need people to help out at our photo-prop booth and to punch cards for our giveaway. (We’re raffling off a Yeti cooler!) Shifts will be about an hour long and a free t-shirt and koozie will be provided.

Now, they are reinstalling the sculpture for the museum’s reopening Sept. 5. Denny Park Fine Arts is the only company authorized by the Chihuly Studio to provide cleaning, deinstallation, packing, moving and storage of artwork by Dale Chihuly. ... See MoreSee Less

Our first "Third Thursday" reading of the fall will take place on the FIFTH Thursday of August and will feature Montgomery poet Jesseca Cornelson, Associate Professor of English at Alabama State University and recipient of a 2016 Literary Arts Fellowship from the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
Because the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art is still completing summer renovations, we will meet on August 31 at Pebble Hill, 101 S. Debardeleben St. in Auburn. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a brief open mic segment prior to Cornelson's reading. Thanks to Pebble Hill for agreeing to host this gathering.
Food and drink will be provided.
The Third Thursday Poetry Series is made possible by grants from Alabama State Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and SouthArts.
