The 20x21EUG Mural Project is an initiative of the City of Eugene Cultural Service’s Public Art Program to create 20 or more world-class outdoor murals in Eugene between now and the 2021 IAAF World Championships. This is the first time the World Championships will be held in the United States.
The concept of a large scale public art project such as 20x21EUG came from Isaac Marquez, Public Art Manager for the City of Eugene and is rooted in Eugene’s rich history of public art, dating back to the Oregon International Sculpture Symposium in 1974. Isaac gathered a committee of arts organisations and community members passionate about the project and street art.
