Welcome to the beauty of Auburn, Massachusetts! Auburn was first settled in 1714 and was incorporated as a town in 1778. It was the location of the very first liquid rocket fuel launch, done by Robert H. Goddard on March 16, 1926.
Thanks to the Auburn Cultural Council, the Blackstone Valley Art Association was able to create a celebration of art and beauty centered on the Goddard Memorial Park in Auburn. We have workshops on oil painting, photography, watercolors, sketching, pencil, and much more.
We are also holding a virtual art contest! Submit up to five artworks you have created which feature the town of Auburn. The art can be painting, photography, sculpture, you name it! Send the JPGs to firstname.lastname@example.org to participate, along with your name. Please submit your entry by December 31, 2020. All levels and abilities are warmly encouraged to participate! We’ll create a slideshow of all the entries and select the winners!
Here are some videos featuring Auburn to get you inspired.
