Calling ALL artists, arts leaders, arts orgs, arts lovers in the Eugene area. Who is not dreaming-wishing-hoping that the Oregon Foundation and EWEB will donate, or help find donors, to give Eugene a world class visual arts center at last. Could it include other arts? Yes it could.
Picture this (as if you haven't already!) -- this aesthetically fabulous, historical treasure of a building housing multiple, local regional, national-to-international art galleries/arts orgs. -- all run via a collaboration of the many great artists and arts orgs. in our city. Including classroom spaces, residency spaces, offices, even a theater and a gift shop. Surrounded by restaurants, pubs, wineries, shopping, gathering spots. The possibilities are endless and the dream has lived in so many of us for decades. The time has come.
We all know that culture and business grow up around the arts. A world-class visual arts center (many of us are calling our dream The Art Plant) would put Eugene on the map bigger and brighter than ever.
This a community plea. We have a highly collaborative arts network. Lets live up to our city motto Eugene. You know what that is.
Sign the petition to our friends at EWEB, The Oregon Foundation, investors and donors who care. SHARE THIS!
