Visual Arts Week brings together hundreds of local, regional, national and international artists through the Mayor’s Art Show, murals, contemporary art installations, pop-up experiences, artist talks, workshops, studio tours and local gallery experiences.
Our vision is to celebrate and give visibility to our visual arts community by providing a platform for experimentation, creativity and dialogue.
Art creates a vibrant community and makes Eugene a great place to live and visit.
Co-presented by City of Eugene Cultural Services, Lane Arts Council and Maude Kerns Art Center.
“I love how much wonderful art is happening all over our sweet little town.” – Chris D. Visual Arts Week 2019
Get ready for ghoulish thrills at the third annual EUGfun Coffin Races. This mad-cap Halloween-themed soap box derby is fun for the whole family. Hand-built, coffin-themed race cars scream with speed, fun and fantasy down Lincoln Street from Skinner Butte.
In addition to white-knuckle spectacles, friends and families can get creative at craft booths, enjoy locally brewed cider and beer, and eat their hearts out while cheering on their favorite teams. In 2019, 3,700 visitors of all ages enjoyed the Coffin Races.
“Thank you City of Eugene, EUGfun! and all the incredible volunteers who make this event so great. So many fantastic coffins and characters. This event is a great addition to our annual community calendar.” - Melissa S. Coffin Races 2019
