Murals & Public Art

Murals tell town stories and colorfully illustrate community characteristics. Discover more about the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region through each town's public wall art.

Opal Whitely Mural in Cottage Grove by Josh AlderCottage Grove has the largest collection of outdoor murals, with 20 mapped on their mural walking tour. Their most celebrated mural depicts former resident Opal Whiteley, a child prodigy who achieved a remarkable blending of science and faith in her compositions. With the beautiful backdrop of the Northwest, Opal stands surrounded by butterflies, trees, and a historic covered bridge.

Springfield also has an extensive concentration of murals downtown. Along their mural walk, view gigantic tributes to Northwest outdoor pursuits like fly fishing, celebrations of national patriotism and pioneering history of the Oregon Trail. Don't miss their most recent addition - a Simpsons mural! On the second Friday each month, Springfield's art galleries along the mural walk host special exhibits and receptions.

Simpsons Mural by Thomas MoserHistoric Old Town Florence features many murals and public art installations as well, including the Dancing with Sea Lions Public Art Project (while many of the sea lion statues were auctioned off, you still be able to spot some of these beauties around town).

Along with art galleries, the passport includes a map of Florence's public art.

Eugene has embarked on the 20x21 EUG Mural Project to install twenty murals by 2021.
