Auburn University – Samford Hall Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.
If you ever went to Auburn University, there’s little doubt you’ll recognize this Samford Hall canvas print.
One of the highlights of my 20’s was the two years I spent in grad school at Auburn University, and I’ll never forget the first time I drove through Auburn. It was a summer afternoon and as I came down College Street, I saw Samford Hall looming ahead of me for the first time. Even if I hadn’t attended Auburn University, I would be impressed by the beauty of that gorgeous old building. But thanks to my time there, I instantly associate this building with my memories of Auburn, the friends I made there, and that time of my life. And that feeling of sweet nostalgia was unquestionably the feeling I was trying to capture in this Auburn artwork.
Samford Hall, built in 1888, is a neoclassical design – more specifically the Romanesque revival style. It was constructed following the fire of the previous “old main” building. For years it was known simply as the “Main” building but in 1929, it was named in honor of William J Samford. Samford Hall originally housed classrooms and the library. As the campus has grown greatly since the 19th century, today this classic structure is the main administration building for Auburn University. And I can’t imagine a building more iconic on campus. The stadium would be the only thing that could come close.
When I see the old clock tower of Samford Hall reaching into the Alabama skies in this Samford Hall canvas print, I’m instantly taken back to my memories of Auburn. How about you? Do you have fond memories of your own years at Auburn? Or maybe you are shopping for a gift for a loved one who went there? Perhaps you have a son or daughter who is there now or graduating soon? I would love to hear what your connection is with Auburn and what attracts you to this Auburn University artwork?
