Visual Arts team is excited to offer our First Art Exhibit of the 2020-21 school year. Effervescence by Grace Horner Recent class of 2020 Graduated in Cinema Studies, Art & Technology and Journalism. The exhibit delves into the topic of isolation in the times of Covid-19. Open July 20 and lasts through August 27 in the EMU Fishbowl. It can be seen any time the Building is open Mon-Fri 11am-7pm Sat & Sun 11am-5pm

Artist Bio: Grace Horner has been drawing for most of her life and started honing her skills at the age of sixteen. She is mostly self-taught and spent her early 20's creating a collection of illustrations for friends, events, and special occasions. Her primary focus is to continue creating art for galleries, storytelling, and personal satisfaction. Grace draws her inspiration from animation, fashion, history, and nature.


Artist Statement: This series represents the bubbly and vivacious energy that comes with imagination during uncertainty. My art offers an inside perspective into the private spheres of recollection, new ideas, and self-expression. Most of these pieces were created during the stay-at-home order, due to COVID-19, in order to cope with my own feelings of loneliness and isolation. I have always used art as a form of expression when words fail me, and my imagination continues to run freely through these pieces. They represent the enthusiasm that comes from the desire to create something beautiful that's beyond the seeing eye and to immerse yourself into a world of effervescent beings.

Museum of Natural and Cultural History

Beginning August 5, the museum will be open Wednesdays through Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  In accordance with university and state public health mandates, we will require everyone onsite to wear masks or other face coverings and maintain a distance of six feet from anyone outside their households.*

Racing to Change chronicles the civil rights movement in Eugene, Oregon, during the 1960s and 1970s—a time of great upheaval, conflict, and celebration as new voices clashed with traditional organizations of power. Co-developed by the Museum of Natural and Cultural History and Oregon Black Pioneers, the exhibit illuminates legacies of racism and the unceasing efforts of Oregon's Black communities to bring about change. 

Through photographs, recorded interviews, and historical archives, Racing to Change explores how racist policies and attitudes created a pressing need for bold civil rights activism in Eugene. Firsthand accounts from movement organizers, former UO students, elected officials, and other members of Oregon's black communities paint a vivid picture of the area's past, and urge us to take part in building a more just future. 

 

*Public hours and safety protocols are subject to change based on guidance from the University of Oregon and the Oregon Health Authority. Please stay tuned to our COVID-19 Updates page for developing information.

Eugene Pride Joins with Black Unity to March for Black Trans Lives on Saturday, August 8, 2020 in lieu of Pride in the Park Festival The March Will Begin at Noon at the Federal Courthouse and End at Kiwanis/Skinner Butte Park

(Eugene, OR) Black Unity, the organizers of the Eugene/Springfield area’s nightly Black Lives Matter protest, and the Eugene Pride Day Equality Project, the non-profit organization that produces Eugene’s annual Pride in the Park Festival, are joining together to rally and march for Black trans lives and to highlight the intersections between the Black community and the LGBTQIA+ community.  The march will begin outside of the Federal Courthouse in downtown Eugene at 12:00 PM on Saturday, August 8 and end at Kiwanis Park at the west end of Skinner Butte Park.   Members of Black Unity and Eugene Pride will host a joint media availability at 1:00 PM on Saturday, August 1st, in front of the Federal Courthouse.

Rallies preceding the march and after its conclusion will feature speakers from  TransPonder, the HIV Alliance, Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon, Black Unity, Senator James Manning, Councilor Greg Evans, and others.  The march will honor the trans Black women and other women of Color who started the movement for gay rights and trans liberation at Stonewall, 51 years ago.  All attendees should wear a mask and practice physical distancing to the extent possible. (For more information regarding the COVID-19 protocols and procedures, please visit our FAQ page.

The Black community is part of the LGBTQIA+ community and vice versa.  Individuals in both communities are targeted for violence for being who they are, face barriers in housing, healthcare, and education, and face higher rates of HIV infection.   At least 21 trangender individuals have been murdered this year, including Nina Pop, Monica Diamond, Riah Milton, Tony McDade and others.  The police continue to murder Black people throughout the country, including George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks, Elijah McClain, and countless others before them.  The march will serve as an opportunity to form stronger community ties and mutual aid networks between the area’s Black and LGBTQIA+ communities.   We stand in solidarity together to condem the continued murder to Black people and trans individuals.

The Eugene/Springfield Pride in the Park Festival is held each year on the second Saturday in August at Alton Baker Park.  This year would have marked the festival’s 29th year, but the festival was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.  In addition to celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community, the Festival raises money for youth scholarships for community members who are attending college that are members of the queer community or children of LGBTQIA+ individuals.  Eugene Pride is committed to centering BIPOC voices in all future festivals and is working to increase BIPOC participation on its board of directors.

The Winter 2020 multimedia journalism class, Storytelling with Communities, invites the public to a screening of the students' current projects.
