Join JCSM and Auburn University Libraries for a series of timely conversations about diversity and greater understanding prompted by objects from JCSM’s permanent collection. Each conversation will begin with an introduction by an art historian and a member of the Auburn University community. Our intention is to let the art prompt us into discussions that allow us to understand our differences and recognize the value of our diverse community.
