Celebrating 125 Years of Auburn Women: Selections from the Permanent Collections
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.

Museum
Civic Spirit
Using artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection, as well as objects from local residents and the Columbus State University Archives, this exhibition examines the growth of civic-minded organizations in 19th-century Columbus and their contemporary counterparts. Mirroring nationwide trends, fraternal organizations and local militia units in Columbus, as well as their female auxiliaries, experienced a significant increase in interest and social activities after the Civil War. This rise in civic organizations reflected growing enthusiasm for philanthropy and so-called voluntary organizations. For African Americans, these groups were vital to staking claims as involved citizens ready to participate in a free society previously denied to them. The exhibition will also explore fraternal and civic organizations active in the area today, which continue to play a vital role in promoting a sense of community and civic philanthropy.

Close Up: Cinema Along the River
The booming film industries of Georgia and Alabama have showcased the states’ communities on the silver screen for years, and the Chattahoochee Valley is no exception. Whether in Columbus, Phenix City, Fort Benning, or other nearby towns, film crews have brought Hollywood to the area while inspiring local filmmakers to create their own cinematic works. This exhibition spotlights the numerous movie and television productions filmed or set in the Chattahoochee Valley, as well as depictions of the area and the greater Southeastern region in American cinema. The careers and innovations of local screen actors, filmmakers, and theater companies past and present will be discussed, as well as movie stars and other luminaries who visited the area for work or personal reasons. A partial list of the productions to be featured includes We Were Soldiers, Sweet Home Alabama, Norma Rae, Warm Springs, Kiss of the Tarantula, Black Hawk Down, Need for Speed, The Green Berets, The Phenix City Story, The Homesman, Tank, Your Mother Wears Combat Boots, and Eat White Dirt.

Museum
Common Grounds
Columbus residents today know the South Commons as home to the Civic Center and Golden Park, but they might not realize that the city was once surrounded by a public greenbelt. This exhibition utilizes maps, artifacts, and images to examine the former Commons areas set aside by Columbus’ founders as public green spaces. The South Commons has been home to ball fields, race tracks, and other recreational pursuits since the city’s early years, but similar spaces also existed on the north and east sides of the city.
