JSU Art Students Participate
in Auburn at McClellan Exhibition
Jacksonville State University students from the Department of Art are
providing graphic design materials for the Auburn at McClellan Exhibition. This exhibition features an "Architecture & Landscape
Architecture" student exhibition of proposals for reuse of the historic Warehouse District at McClellan. The historic warehouse
district is part of the 45,000-acre former army base, Fort McClellan, which was closed in 1999. The district once housed stables
for horses, a blacksmith, a paint shop, a motor pool, and contained numerous brick structures. This area has been selected as
the future site of an arts and cultural center.
In the tradition of the internationally recognized rural and urban studios, Auburn University Architecture and Landscape
Architecture departments are using the site at McClellan as an architectural workshop where architecture, landscape architecture,
and art respond to the environment in an ever changing cycle of reuse.
A wide range of proposals is being developed by Auburn including an equestrian center, bird sanctuaries, museums, treetop walkways,
outdoor amphitheaters, and a winery. Detailed plans and scale models will be on exhibit in the Longleaf Studio, which is one
of the buildings to be developed.
The Auburn at McClellan Exhibition is free and open to the public on Saturday, April 22 from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. during the
Mountain Longleaf Festival and every following Saturday through "Music at McClellan" until June 17. This exhibition is available
for viewing at Longleaf Studio, Building 236, McClellan, Anniston, AL.
