Auburn’s Downtown Sculpture Gallery program, now in its sixth year, exhibits sculptures on loan from talented regional artists and displays them for all to experience.

The sculptures become an integral part of the downtown streetscape with yearly changes bringing people back to see the new art and walk through downtown businesses. The sculpture changes out every September.

The artworks that are part of the Downtown Sculpture Gallery showcase a variety of styles and techniques.

An additional element of the is the People’s Choice award. Residents and visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite sculpture and the artist with the most votes receives a $500 cash award. Votes are also taken into consideration for the annual Purchase Award by the Arts Commission.
