August 7-15, 2020
Visual Arts Week celebrates the visual arts and provides a platform for experimentation, creativity and dialogue. This year’s offerings include a mix of virtual and in-person experiences to engage people at all levels.
Visit downtown and online galleries to enjoy the diverse and beautiful creations of our community’s artists with The Mayor’s Art Show, Salon des Refusés and the Eugene Biennial. Take an in-depth look at artists and studio spaces in action through virtual studio tours, photos, demos and artist talks. Tour satellite art installations displayed in downtown window-fronts and revisit our city’s 20x21 murals. Expand your artistic skills in educational workshops with seasoned artists.
Art is shared interaction, cultural exchange, and a powerful connector between people regardless of ethnicity, religion, age or socio-economic status. Come celebrate the visual arts with us!
Whether on foot, by car or by bike, there’s opportunity for everyone to enjoy storefront art installations throughout downtown Eugene. Installations include “Black is Beautiful” created by the Eugene BIPOC Artist Collective for the 2020 Juneteenth; David Walker’s wooden wearable art that has been featured in competitions and exhibitions around the world; and digital dance projections, a collaboration between DanceAbility International and Harmonic Laboratory.
