Though the exhibition is closing on Sunday, January 24, there is still time for charitable giving! You may make your charitable gift towards the 1072 Society Class of 2016 through January 31. This year focuses on photography and features historic, traditional, and contemporary examples of that diverse medium.

Make your charitable donation online or by calling Cindy Cox at 334.844.3005.

The 1072 Society is composed of friends of the museum who contribute funds annually for the express purpose of acquiring new art for JCSM’s permanent collection. Each year we assemble and exhibit a selection of art for consideration of purchase with funds generated by this group, so-named in honor of the dollar amount paid in 1948 for 36 modernist paintings to establish a university collection. Today, 1072 Society donors carry forward that initial vision to collect significant art at Auburn.
