Sculptures on the Square

The Auburn Arts Commission aspires to showcase local artists of NE IN. Some of their activities include: Snowbound Writers’ Contest every January; the Auburn Jazz Fest; an outdoor jazz ensemble; children’s theater and other projects.

In 2007 the Arts Commission brought in a twenty piece exhibit of life-like bronze sculptures of J. Seward Johnson. The town was alive on a Tuesday afternoon with tourists walking from sculpture to sculpture and hopefully also shopping in the downtown stores.

The arts are becoming an increasingly important factor in branding a community. Auburn gets it!
