WOW Hall Exhibit

For the month of September, the Community Center for the Performing Arts will host Opportunity Village Eugene - An Exhibit in the Lobby Art Gallery at the WOW Hall.

Opportunity Village has evolved from the mayor's Opportunity Eugene Task Force, which asked community members to recommend new and innovative ways for dealing with the City's growing homeless population. The village aims to provide a self-governing community of alternative housing for the unhoused in a drug, alcohol and violence free environment. This exhibit displays the initial planning stages for Opportunity Village including conceptual illustrations, designs for compact dwellings, and a precedence study of Portland's Dignity Village. Stop by and check it out!

The WOW Hall Lobby Art Gallery is open for viewing during office hours, 3:00 to 6:00 pm Monday and noon to 6:00 pm Tuesday through Friday. The WOW Hall is located at the corner of 8th and Lincoln in Eugene. For more information, please call 541-687-2746.
