On Aug. 23, the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University became the first venue in Alabama to present “The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection.”

One of the most comprehensive surveys of African American history outside the Smithsonian Institution, the exhibition is on view through Dec. 30 with free admission. Auburn’s installation features more than 100 objects, including paintings, sculptures, photographs, rare books, letters and manuscripts that provide new perspectives on the nation’s history and culture.

Organized by the Bernard and Shirley Kinsey Foundation for Arts and Education and KBK Enterprises, the award-winning global engagement represents more than 50 years of collecting by the organization namesakes. The family’s mission is to raise awareness and celebrate African American achievements dating back to 1595.
