The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Arts at Auburn University opens a sculptural installation, "A Brief History of Aviation," on Saturday.
The sculpture, created by David Henderson, will be in the Grand Gallery of the museum.
Henderson, who is based in Brooklyn, N.Y., will talk about his work at 6 p.m. EDT Thursday in the museum's auditorium. Advance registration is recommended.
For the sculpture, Henderson used fiberglass and Dacron, the same materials used to make ultra-light aircraft.
