Gallery: Eugene Street Art

In 2021 Eugene will be hosting the World Athletics Championships, and the goal of the 20×21 project is to have decorated the city with twenty world class murals by then. New pieces are added each summer, and by happy accident our barely 24 hour visit overlapped with this year’s visual arts festival. Thus we were able to see works in progress and some so new the paint had barely dried! Tracking down these and the installations from previous years gave us an interesting way to explore downtown Eugene, which turned out to be a very walk-able city (especially by american standards). Along the way we also found plenty of smaller contributions by the mural artists, as well as work not related to 20×21. Here’s a few photographic highlights.
