Downtown Eugene’s empty storefronts become galleries and spaces for artists to demonstrate their craft. Come downtown by foot, car or bike to enjoy a self guided tour of windowfronts transformed into Asian Celebration’s art installations, exhibits and 1000 Hopes Art Installation.

Windowfront Exhibitions (WE) showcase local artists and arts organizations, transforms vacant storefronts into works of art, highlights our downtown businesses and offers vibrancy and engagement to the community. We believe that all empty spaces have great potential to be transformed by artists and innovation.
