Art museum improvements scheduled for summer of 2017

The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University is working with the Office of the University Architect to implement phase one of a museum renovation. To complete the work, the museum will temporarily close to the public during the summer and reopen in the fall. The Lethander Art Path and Susan Phillips Gardens will remain accessible to visitors during the renovation.

Project manager Joe Ruscin described the plan, noting the largest undertaking in this project will be to improve the acoustics in the Grand Gallery, the Dwight and Helen Carlisle Lobby and the Museum Café—something that has been under discussion since the museum opened to the public in 2003. Crews will apply a sound control product to the ceiling surfaces in those spaces, improving the acoustics while still maintaining the aesthetics of the venue. [Read more]
