Mayor's Art Show

The Mayor’s Art Show (MAS) is part of a larger celebration of contemporary visual art, artists and the City’s public spaces. Art is shared interaction, cultural exchange, and lodges in the very heart of what makes us grateful to live here. Art speaks to everyone. 


The City recognizes the hard work required of artists, who dedicate body, mind and spirit to the creation of their vision. We believe in the power of art to establish space for citizens where safety, success, and well-being are not pre-determined by race, class, sexual orientation, gender, age, mental or physical ability. We celebrate art production and highlight the accomplishments of artists who enrich our community.

Critical MASCritical MAS Writer’s Reading + Artist Conversation

August 29 • 7-8:30 p.m.

The community is invited to a reading from the writers of the “Write About Visual Art - Critical MAS” workshop. Let’s enjoy a last look at the Mayor’s Art Show 2019 and hear these thoughtful pieces. Local writers turned their attention to Eugene’s Visual Arts Week, including the Mayor’s Art Show, BRIDGE Exhibitions and the Salon des Refuses. Writers selected the art they wanted to write about, after completing a 4-session workshop led by artist and author Vicki Krohn Amorose. The art writing is published online at EugeneContemporaryArt.com/blog/
