Arts Guide

2021 Arts Guide Poster

The Arts & Business Alliance of Eugene commissioned local artist Dorothy Siemens to design the cover artwork for the 2021 Arts Guide. Dorothy Siemens is an illustrator and multimedia artist from Eugene, Oregon. This piece celebrates the resilience we found in 2020 and how we quickly learned the importance of showing up for one another. We now have 11×17 posters of this artwork available for sale. All proceeds from the poster sales will help support the creation of next year’s Arts Guide.

Partnership is our raison d’être, our reason for being. We exist because of partnerships and center our work around helping others form meaningful partnerships that help local businesses and arts organizations achieve mutual success.

The ABAE is thriving today because of these forward-thinking local organizations who believed that by creating an alliance, they could ensure the arts are always recognized and celebrated as vital to our community’s health and longevity. Our founding partners continue to support and leadership.

These amazing business partners helped bring our fabulous events to life this year:
