Walking the Murals & Urban Art Scene in Eugene, Oregon

I like my hiking repertoire to also include urban trails. Over the past months in Eugene, Oregon, a number of building-sized murals have started appearingĀ  – some almost overnight. I needed to check out this gigantic expression of creativity, so I gave an open invitation for an informal walk. Surprisingly, nineteen people joined me! The murals are part of the 20×21 project, an initiative to create 20 or more world-class outdoor murals in Eugene between now and the premier track and field 2021 IAAF World Championships. As a runner myself, I am really excited for this event. After the walk, some of us enjoyed a tasty lunch at Sizzle Pie for pizza and salad (the vegan pizza there rocks; an image is included below). Here are a few photos:
