JCSM called nine members of the university community to respond objectively and subjectively to art from JCSM’s growing collection of natural history prints. The resulting exhibition is an orchestrated chorus of diverse voices responding to the art, science, and wonder of representing the natural world.
To expand the conversation, Ralph Brown Draughon Library’s Special Collections Department loaned materials from their collections; JCSM appreciates their kind collaboration. We also thank the Auburn University Museum of Natural History in the College of Science and Mathematics for loaning materials from their ornithology collection.
Respondents participating in the exhibition:
Barb Bondy, visual artist (drawing)
Kathryn Braund, historian
Anton DiSclafani, fiction writer
Andrew Kozlowski, printmaker
Zdenko Krtic, painter
Keetje Kuipers, poet
Jessye McDowell, new media artist
Rose McLarney, poet
Claire Wilson, editor, “Encyclopedia of Alabama”
