Mayor's Art Show

Mayors Art Show paint and brushes

The City of Eugene is delighted to bring back the Mayor’s Art Show. The Mayor’s Art Show (MAS) will be part of a larger celebration of contemporary visual art, artists and the City’s public spaces. The MAS celebrates local artists, art production and champions the visual arts. The MAS recognizes the accomplishments of artists who are committed to enriching their communities through visual arts. Our aim with this show is to cultivate diversity, equity, and access to the visual arts and artists. We envision a city of citizens whose success, safety and health are not pre-determined by their race, class, sexual orientation, gender, age, mental or physical ability.

The exhibition will be held in the Maurie Jacobs Community Room at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts. The exhibition will take place July 27, 2018 through August 25, 2018.
