The Paul R. Jones Museum is pleased to present WITHIN: Portrait Responses to the Paul R. Jones Collection, January 17 through February 16, 2024. The public is invited to a reception on Friday, February 2, 2024, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. during Tuscaloosa’s First Friday Art Walk.
WITHIN is an exhibition of the PRJCAA K-12 Outreach Program, a long-running exhibition series that brings connection and art education to local schools. Partnering with faculty and staff in the UA Department of Art and Art History, the program introduces elementary and secondary school students to artworks from the Paul R. Jones Collection of American Art at The University of Alabama. This year, students from four art classes at Tuscaloosa’s Central High School taught by UA alumni Parker Hunt (MFA 2023), created this exhibition, WITHIN, inspired by artworks in the collection.
The Paul R. Jones Museum is an essential part of the education and development of UA students and our community. Admission to the museum is free. The museum is located at 2308 Sixth Street, in downtown Tuscaloosa, one block from the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center. Hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and First Fridays, 12 noon-8 p.m. Have questions or need assistance? Call (205) 345-3038 or go to their website.
