The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University is partnering with the Utah Division of Arts & Museums on a national research study to evaluate the social impact museums have on their communities. There is an open call for individuals to participate in the study.

Participants are asked to visit three times between August 2021 through May 2022. After the final visit, there is a 30-minute online survey about the experience.
