Tonight is the night we here at the EW offices have been waiting months for — the First Friday ArtWalk when we will introduce the winning box art for our ArtsHound on Broadway contest and the artists behind the winning designs (read more here). Eugene Weekly will be the tour guide for this event and we begin with the first box outside Tokyo Tonkatsu at Broadway and Charnelton downtown at 5:30 pm sharp, so don't be late. Artist will speak about their designs and artwalkers are encouraged to ask questions.
We will stop at each art box along Broadway and Willamette until we reach the Hult Center's Jacob Gallery for the 2014 Mayor's Art Show, with more stops to follow.
I was able to pop into the Jacob's Gallery yesterday and I must say, this is one of the best collections of local art I have seen. Here's a little visual appetizer from the Jacob's Gallery to whet your appetite for the ArtWalk tonight.
