Art Installations

Whether on foot, by car or by bike, there’s opportunity for everyone to enjoy storefront art installations throughout downtown Eugene. Installations include “Black is Beautiful” created by the Eugene BIPOC Artist Collective for the 2020 Juneteenth; David Walker’s wooden wearable art that has been featured in competitions and exhibitions around the world; and digital dance projections, a collaboration between DanceAbility International and Harmonic Laboratory. Installations are included on our Downtown Art Tour map.
