What is BRAA?
The Blacksburg Regional Art Association is a group of artists in Blacksburg, Va., and the surrounding New River Valley area. The association is dedicated to the pursuit and enjoyment of art both personally and in the community. Established in 1950, the association has continued through the all-volunteer efforts of creative people of all ages and styles of art, the enthusiastic support of the community and the ever-present urge to see, create and enjoy beauty in the world around us.
