The three Out of the Box award recipients join us this semester give Thursday evening public lectures shedding light on the evolution of their work, their studio practice and the conceptualization of the work they have in JCSM’s outdoor sculpture exhibition. Don’t miss the chance to learn firsthand from the artists whose work grace our grounds during 2018. This program is made possible in part by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
