JCSM opened to the public on October 3, 2003. In celebration of its 10-year anniversary, the museum opened the first juried outdoor sculpture exhibition on October 4th of this year. Our Out of the Box Judges for the competition, partners and accomplished artists, Carol Mickett and Robert Stackhouse, selected ten finalists who received one thousand dollars each. First, second and honorable mention prizes were awarded totaling five thousand dollars. The artists’ work will be displayed on the museum grounds in a yearlong observance of the anniversary.
The museum is grateful to our sponsors: Julian Roberts Haynes, in memory of Dr. Lucile McGehee Haynes, and Grace K. and David E. Johnson. Additional funding provided by the Susan Phillips Educational Gift Fund. This exhibition was organized by Andy Tennant and Jessica Hughes.
