This is Sandy Brown Jensen, and you’re listening to Viz City, KLCC’s Arts Review Program.

It’s mid-November, and I’ve got a great little min-art walk for you through downtown EUGENE.

Start at Oregon Art Supply at 2030 Pearl for a cheerfully dazzling array of 12 x 12 red paintings. Six artists took on the challenge of interpreting the color RED, and the results range from vermillion to scarlet to magenta. While consistent with that size format, the differences between the six women really are fun to study closely.

Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy gave the annual State of the City address Wednesday night at the Hult Center.   She expressed pride about the successes and new initiatives of the past year, but there was an undercurrent of sobriety because of the budgetary challenges ahead.

Downtown revitalization – it’s been an item on Mayor Piercy’s and the City Council’s to-do list for at least a decade.  Now they’re checking it off.
