Eugene Magazine | September 2017 | By Alex V. Cipolle
The magic of the 20×21 Eug Mural Project this summer is impossible to capture in words or images, but we’re going to try. Nine artists from six different countries descended on our fair city armed with paintbrushes and spray cans, ready to make it fairer still, all the while working through the hottest week of summer. They stayed with locals, painted alongside locals and, in the process, became honorary Eugeneans. The mural project will continue for the next few summers, ushering in more artists from near and far, until the 2021 IAAF World Championships.
