Hult Center

"The City of the Arts and Outdoors" is losing another visual art space. Jacobs Art Gallery at the Hult Center in Eugene has announced plans to close. They say the community gallery doesn't receive the financial support necessary to operate.

The last few days have been tough for Alex Brokaw. After being a part of the decision to close, the Jacobs Gallery Board President is still coming to terms.

Sandy and Terry talk about the Illuminations Exhibit.

Mary DeMocker

Eugene resident Mary DeMocker is creating a block-long interactive art installation protesting the proposed Pacific Connector pipeline.

DeMocker's homemade pipeline stretches across her neighbors' yards. It serves as a visual representation of eminent domain, which Pacific Connector might use to claim the land it needs to transport natural gas. DeMocker describes her mock project:

"What we've done is basically condemned all of the neighbors' houses, as will be done if this natural gas pipeline is allowed to go through between Malin and Coos Bay Oregon."

Terry Way and Sandy Brown Jensen review the excellent new Mayor's Art Show, significant because of its variety of entries.

The heart of every conflict is a strong will. Artists have definite opinions about their work. It’s the passion they feel that fuels their creativity. But it can also lead to conflict when they combine their talents. That’s what one married couple found when they decided to work together to create a unique sculpture. Our story comes from Julie Sabatier of the public radio show, Destination DIY.
