Lane Arts Council presents the 3rd Mural Bike Tour in Eugene! The 2-hour tour begins at 10am on Saturday, August 20th at the Whiteaker Carpark South (5th Alley and Blair Boulevard) and features 17 murals in the Whiteaker Neighborhood and downtown Eugene. The total tour will travel approximately 2 miles by bicycle. The Tour will be led by 20×21 EUG Mural Project Committee Member Paul Godin.
Ila Rose, Kari Johnson, Jordan Schaefer-Limbach, Ron Lafond, Valentina Gonzalez, Hans d’Hollosy, Jim Evangelista, and Beau Stanton will all be present to speak on behalf of their work during the tour.
This event includes 2 murals that are a part of the new mural initiative titled the 20×21 EUG Mural Project. The 20×21 EUG Mural Project plans to create twenty or more world-class outdoor murals in Eugene before the 2021 IAAF World Championships. In June, Acidum Project of Brazil painted a mural on the side of Cowfish Dance Club. Beau Stanton, a Los Angeles/Brooklyn based artist, will be putting the finishing touches on his mural on the back of the McDonald Theatre during the Mural Bike Tour. He will also speak about this new mural at the conclusion of the tour.
Mural Bike Tour Coordinator Jessica Watson states, “We are fortunate that Eugene has such a fantastic collection of murals! Our Mural Bike Tour provides the unique opportunity for attendees to learn about the featured murals directly from the artists. We are also thrilled to highlight the two newest murals that are a part of the 20×21 EUG Mural Project.”
The 2016 Mural Bike Tour is sponsored by the City of Eugene Cultural Services, John A. Wolfe, PC of Speer Hoyt, LLC, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, First National Taphouse, and Cascadian Courier Collective.
