As Oregon’s public health restrictions are gradually lifted, a number of galleries and arts businesses have now opened their doors again. To reduce crowding and allow for safe social distancing, we are expanding the ArtWalk experience to a full week! Come downtown to enjoy Eugene’s art scene and support local artists during First Friday ArtWeek, July 3-10. Find more information about First Friday ArtWeek here.
