The Whiteaker neighborhood sports some of the best murals in town, from the more recent colorful splashes of paint that adorn the WJ Skatepark + Urban Plaza to the iconic, gorgeous piece by Kari Johnson at 4th and Monroe, painted in the ’90s. Join a group of art-appreciating bikers for the Lane Art Council’s 2nd Mural Bike Tour on Aug. 16. Leading the way is Shawn Mediaclast, co-owner of Cowfish and founder of the Museum of Unfine Art, who will interview a handful of mural artists as the tour rolls along, including Jim Evangelista, Ron Lafond and Esteban Camacho. Art and biking: How much more Eugene can it get?
The Mural Bike Tour is 10am Saturday, Aug. 16, at the WJ Skatepark + Urban Plaza. FREE. — Amy Schneider
