Auburn University’s Jule Collins Museum of Fine Art features three unique exhibitions highlighting environment, healing and migration. Let’s jump into these expressive styles on display through January 22, 2022.

1. Outside In

Collaborating with Auburn’s Museum of Natural History, the Louise Hauss and David Brent Miller Audubon Collection presents Outside In. The project includes Audubon’s naturalistic pieces of American wildlife alongside true-to-life-size insects. The art depicts environment and habitat in this unique display.

2. The Joy Fields

Auburn alumna Whitney Wood Bailey’s The Joy Fields illustrates her journey dealing with a life-changing illness through 24 stunning paintings. The artist describes the work as a “new kind of joy,” bringing energy and vibrancy to the paintings through her healing process.

On Sunday, November 14 at 1:30PM, an artmaking activity inspired by the exhibition will be open to museum visitors.

3. Anila Quayy Agha: The Weight of Black

The mesmerizing display of The Weight of Black by Anila Quayy Agha presents three installations throughout the gallery.

  • Shimmering Mirage, a hanging cube reflecting beautiful shadows on the walls
  • This is NOT a Refuge, an eight-foot illuminated house
  • Itinerant Shadows, a series of small cubes along the wall

The artist is known for creating sculptures that balance light and shadows. Agha utilizes the displays to represent migration, loss and displacement.

To visit these remarkable exhibitions, head to 901 S College St, Auburn, AL 36849.
