On your mark. Get set. GO!

Explore the museum grounds, using outdoor sculptures as clues.


  • 1. Auburn is associated with tigers, but can you find a sculpture depicting their large feline cousin?
  • BONUS: In the film "Napoleon Dynamite," Napoleon was obsessed with these two big cats' cross-bred offspring.


  • 2. This sculpture features larger than life depictions of five birds that are extinct in North America.
  • DOUBLE BONUS: Snap a pic with your favorite bird and post, tagging @JCSMAuburn.


  • 3. This wall-crawling sculpture was inspired by underground tunnels in the former mining town of Durango, Colorado.
  • BONUS: Scan the QR code on the label to learn more about the artist.

  • 4. Find a sculpture in the museum’s pond. Much like real rabbits, who are social creatures that prefer to live in groups, artist Alex Podesta always creates his “bunny men” in pairs or groups.

  • 5. Head to the museum’s terrace to find Daisy, the four-year-old golden doodle from the School of Nursing’s CAREing Paws program.

    Studies show therapy dogs can lower hormones related to stress, such as cortisone and elevate mood-inducing hormones such as serotonin and oxytocin.
  • Congratulations!

    Once you've completed the outdoor scavenger hunt, head inside for more encounters with art.

    If you've completed both games, please use the remaining time to explore the galleries and grounds. The museum closes at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, with the last admission one hour before close.
