Art students take the lead in museum’s ‘A Little Art Talk’ programs

A program at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art provides an experience for Auburn’s art students that can translate to their professional careers. The program is "A Little Art Talk," held at 5 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month during the academic year, and is led by students in Kathryn Floyd’s "20th-century Art from 1945 to the Present" class.

Little Art Talks have also been staffed by students in Assistant Professor Emily Burns’ upper level art history classes. Enrolled in classes as myriad as 19th-century art, American Art, Constructing Race in Visual Culture or the Arts of Asia, Burns’ students have found an array of objects to analyze in the collections. At the beginning of the semester, the students have a class meeting to visit the museum to view objects relevant to the class; each student picks a piece to research and to present as an art talk to museum patrons.
