Riverfront Park Fenceline

Coming soon with the opening of the Riverfront Park

Presented by ArtCity, in partnership with City of Eugene Parks and Open Spaces and Cultural Services

Culture Raising is a temporary public art project along a 100 foot fenceline in the new Riverfront Park. The artwork brings awareness to the Native American people and cultures in our community. Through this installation, the public will see larger than life faces of Native American people who live in our community. Half of each elder’s face is matched with a youth or young adult face, representing the past, present and future of the cultures and emphasizing unity. This project was made possible by Urban Renewal Funding and was an open call artist opportunity.
