At a media-only event on Oct. 28 at Eugene Airport, artist Liza Burns drew back the curtain on a mural-sized version of her design for the new Oregon Cultural Trust license plate, which celebrates the trust’s 20th anniversary. The mural will hang in the passenger terminal near Gate A; similar murals are being installed at the airports in Portland, Redmond and Medford.
The new plates went on sale Oct. 1 through Oregon DMV. The design weaves 127 Oregon cultural symbols into a brightly colored landscape of the state.
Dancers from Eugene Ballet were on hand at the unveiling to dance a scene from Cinderella, which runs at the Hult Center Nov. 5-7.
