Summer Art 2017

You Had Me At Merlot 2017

Welcome to DeKalb County and beautiful downtown Auburn, Indiana!

From early June to Labor Day weekend you will be able experience Auburn's Summer Art Exhibit! This Summer’s Art Exhibit entitled “You Had Me at Merlot” will feature twenty 59 gallon wooden wine barrels. The exhibit will be the eighth outdoor art exhibit presented by the Downtown Auburn Business Association (DABA).
Like previous exhibits, these wine barrels will be placed in the Downtown Auburn Business District. Each is a unique creation of art by local & regional artists and will have a plate affixed to it identifying the artist, title of their work, and sponsoring individuals or businesses.

Brochures with more information and a map showing the location of each barrel are available at the Visitors Bureau and most downtown shops. Pick one up and enjoy a walking tour of not only the barrels, but also DeKalb County's beautiful courthouse square, and Auburn's unique shops and Historical District!
