AUBURN UNIVERSITY - The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University was voted 'Best of Bama' in the art museum category in Alabama Magazine's online competition. Voters named their favorites in categories including dining, sports, shopping and arts and entertainment, and the results are published in the July/August edition of the magazine.
"What an honor to be chosen by popular vote as the best art museum in Alabama," said museum director Marilyn Laufer. "We believe that art changes lives and we work hard in every way to make that happen for our diverse audiences."
In 2013, the Jule Collins Smith Museum will celebrate 10 years of providing the community with opportunities to experience its ever-changing exhibitions, educational programming and expanding permanent collections. The museum opened in 2003 and is the only university art museum in Alabama.
