On Thursday nights from 5 to 8, the Rotunda and Cafe (and when the weather’s nice, the Terrace) become JCSM After Hours. It’s the perfect place for relaxing, watching the sunset, and listening to music. Hear original songs, jazz, classical, cultural, and sometimes adventurous music fill the pristine spaces at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University.
JCSM After Hours features a variety of musicians including the house band, Cullars Improvisational Rotation. Made up of Dan Mackowski (guitars), Patrick McCurry (woodwinds), Jason DeBlanc (basses), and guests, Cullars is a jazz trio with a southern sensibility: thoughtful, ambient, and adventurous. Named after the oldest soil fertility study in the South, the group embraces its roots and promotes new growth through delicately rehearsed arrangements of standards, originals, hymns and improvisations.
Cafe service is available with food and drink by Ursula’s Catering, the fine art exhibitions are open and free to the public, and the gift shop is open.
