I Dream of Eugene: The Fifth Street Market Mural

 Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy ~ Kathy Matthews

Last Christmas, Cary and I drove to Eugene to spend an early Christmas Eve celebration with my side of the family at Mom's house.  The next day, we went to the 5th Street Market for breakfast before heading back home.  I wrote a post about the market then (please click here if you want to see it), but wanted to also do a separate one of the beautiful mural that greets you when you walk in.  So, here it is!

This link is to the 5th Street Market website, and shows the  progression of painting of the mural.  I found this on the Downtown Eugene.com website:


"During a recent research project the market staff has come across several important pieces of Eugene's history and we are incorporating this history into the architecture of the market; through murals, etched granite, pictures and inspirational quotes that will be placed through out the market for your exploration and discovery. Adding to the new 5th Avenue entrance we are incorporating a mural all along the staircase that will begin in late June for the public to watch come alive."

That is a wonderful mural. It is so large. I wonder if more than one artist worked on it. Thanks for sharing it.

I love seeing murals such as these in towns and cities. These murals have so much to look at,you could spend a lot of time looking it over.

I am amazed by the artist's work.
