The Auburn Alumni Association is celebrating the proud tradition begun with enrolling the first female students in 1892 with the 125 Years of Auburn Women: the pioneers who broke boundaries and opened doors for others; the brilliant stars who transcended negativity and propriety to shine around the world; the doers and dreamers who knew that this practical world runs on work—hard work. As a part of the yearlong celebration, JCSM joins the alumni association to appreciate all that our alumnae have done and continue to do through Auburn University. In selecting works from the permanent collections, curators are highlighting the contributions of women artists, including some artists from our collection who have connections to Auburn.
