Auburn Arts Association
The Auburn Arts Association (AAA) was founded as a non-profit, volunteer, community-based arts organization in 1982. The AAA’s primary objectives are to promote arts education, encourage and support local artists and arts initiatives and to stimulate community interest in the arts.
The AAA provides quality arts experiences for students, professional opportunities for local artists and performers, technical assistance and financial support encouraging community-based arts initiatives, scholarships for talented community members, cooperative arts education projects, an exhibition program and a variety of arts services and social activities.
The AAA is governed by a board made up of local artists and business persons in the community. Membership is open to anyone, individual, student, senior, family, benefactor and corporate sponsors.
The AAA works hand-in-hand with the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center (JDCAC) to provide classes and summer camps in the visual arts, to present exhibitions in the Art Gallery, and to sponsor numerous workshops and events that benefit and enhance our community’s cultural life. The AAA encourages you to volunteer with us! Contact the JDCAC at (334) 501-2963 for more information.
