Eugene Supports the Arts

The City of Eugene established its commitment to the visual arts through the Percent for Art Ordinance of 1981, which states that it is an appropriate function of government to foster arts and the development of artists. Visual arts contribute to and provide experiences which enrich and better our social and physical environment. The commissioning of art works in public places, in addition to furthering the policy of fostering art and developing artists, enriches public perception of government buildings, parks and other public spaces.

The City of Eugene’s Public Art collection can be seen in many places throughout the city. The Hult Center is the home of many treasures of public art. Art at the Hult includes a permanent collection on display, as well as work that is architecturally integrated throughout the building.
