The second annual Visual Arts Week returns from Aug. 2-9 and brings together hundreds of local, regional, national and international artists through gallery, contemporary and street art.
Visual Arts Week celebrates the visual arts community by providing a platform for experimentation, creativity and dialogue that strengthens our community’s quality of life and social well-being. VAW’s wide variety of events results from a collaboration between City of Eugene, Lane Arts Council and Maude Kerns Art Center. The partnership provided an expansive reach to bring visual artists out of their studios and into the public eye.
