Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University (JCSM) is an academic unit reporting to the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. JCSM’s Annual Report is published annually by JCSM and is distributed to museum members and others in the arts communities.

This publication is supported in part by Davis Direct, Inc.

© 2017 Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University. Auburn University is an equal opportunity educational institution/employer.


Since we opened to the public in October of 2003, we have created various summaries of our activities for in-house analysis or for presentations to the university administration and our Advisory Board members; however, this is the first time we have produced an Annual Report to share with all of our colleagues and constituencies.

OUR ANNUAL REPORT: TAKES STOCK OF AND REFLECTS ON all museum activities. SETS FUTURE GOALS and objectives. Acknowledges you and EXPRESSES GRATITUDE. Measuring our accomplishments, as well as our challenges, affords us valuable insights about our implementation of best practices as an accredited museum and inspires us to meet the very high standards we have set for ourselves. The quality and range of our collections continues to grow with the support of donors and such groups as the 1072 Society, resulting in the museum’s collections becoming one of this university’s great resources. Faculty requests to access these collections for teaching and student projects are reaching an all-time high, and we find ourselves pressed for space and staff to accommodate everyone. In fact, this increased demand is apparent in all of our programs, from K-12 tours and classes to our growing demographics of retirees. Because of this, we spent much of 2015–16 working with consultants from Museum Insights to develop a strong strategic building plan that identified how future renovation and

expansion would enable us to increase our services and meet the growing expectations of our audiences who have come to recognize JCSM as an essential component in the cultural and educational life of our campus and community. Our exhibition program continues to introduce meaningful and thought-provoking educational opportunities. Being relevant in an ever-changing and challenging world requires that the museum staff address a wide range of ideas and aspects of history, art and material culture in our exhibitions and through the more than 200 programs we provide annually. Reaching and engaging the many audiences that stretch across campus and community has been exciting as we balance social media and new digital technologies with the tried and true method of print. Our success in this area has resulted in various awards and acknowledgments from professional organizations such as the American Alliance of Museums and the Southeastern Museums Conference. As a counterbalance to reporting on JCSM’s many activities and achievements, we have also included our Strategic Plan for 2017–22. Over the next five years, it is our hope to focus the museum’s artistic, human and financial resources on making the JCSM experience a rewarding and dynamic participatory journey for all of our visitors. Our goals and objectives convey our strong vision for the future as well as our core values. All of us at JCSM do this because this is Auburn.




power of art

MISSION STATEMENT Art changes lives. Our mandate within the larger mission of Auburn University is to preserve, enhance, research and interpret the collections entrusted to us. Through the presentation of compelling exhibitions and programs to our diverse audiences, we foster the transformative power of art.


JCSM CORE VALUES STATEMENT Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University acknowledges that the following points are the guiding principles by which we will work and plan for the future of this institution.

POWER OF ART: Central to our core values is the belief in the transformative powers of art. We are dedicated to providing our audience with unparalleled experience of direct interaction with a unique work of art whether through our diverse exhibition schedule or through our museum's growing permanent collections. These works of art are at the heart of our museum identity.

PROFESSIONALISM: In all we do, we will treat all colleagues, visitors, and staff members with respect, recognizing that we are at all times representatives of JCSM, the University, and the museum profession. Together, we welcome the responsibility of being accountable for the care and preservation of those collections entrusted to us.

EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION: Key to our mission is providing a welcoming learning environment for our faculty, students, community and regional members. It is our intention that through academic research, visual appreciation and direct encounters with visual expression from different eras and places of origin, we will provide significant and possibly even life-changing educational opportunities. In teaching that art is the result of discipline, study and the ability to face the uncertainties of creative experimentation, we encourage all students with diverse experiences to explore new and challenging ideas.

LEADERSHIP AND INNOVATION: We will strive to achieve best practices in all we do and to empower and encourage those around us to discover original ways to motivate and inspire. The creative expression that is central to our institution shapes how we will plan, teach and face challenges.

DIVERSE COMMUNITY: We are committed to reaching and sustaining a broad audience base representative not only of our whole university but also of our entire regional community. As we expand our constituency, we seek to be all-inclusive and not discriminate against race, creed, color, religion, age, disabilities, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, political opinions or affiliations, and veteran status.



FINANCIAL OVERVIEW Financial security is of utmost importance to art museums and other cultural institutions that rely heavily on charitable giving. For JCSM to be able to fulfill its mission to “foster the transformative power of art,” it needs to have sufficient funding to make it all possible. Over the past 10 years, JCSM has achieved financial stability and sustainability through continued base-budget funding from Auburn University, through generous support from our constituents, through long-term financial investments, and through earned income from our museum shop and venue rentals. With dependable funding sources and sensible spending practices in place, the museum is able to undertake activities that benefit our visitors, our collections, and Auburn University. The following is an overview of our financial figures for FY2015–16.

SUPPORT from the heart


As a part of Auburn University and under the umbrella of the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, JCSM is funded by the university that owns the building, grounds and provides utilities, staff salaries, security and insurances, among many other things. We think of Auburn as providing the strong framework on which we are able to build, because all of our programs, projects, exhibitions, and acquisitions are possible only because of the generosity of our donors, supporters and members. We are truly appreciative of this support, ranging from donating five dollars at the front door to establishing an endowment or underwriting an exhibition. All of these charitable gifts come from the heart and reveal that you trust in our mission. To all of you who have been part of JCSM, thank you for believing that at JCSM, Art Changes Lives.
