When it comes to Bend’s art scene, we want you to engage a little. You know, shake a painting’s hand and compliment the way the frame shows off its svelte figure.
We’re proud Bend has an award-winning collection of public art. We like to think our public art makes it easier for you all to get to know each other amid day-to-day activities like parking your car or shopping downtown. You might choose to linger awhile, or you might toss each other a passing wink of appreciation for the breathtaking views, fresh air, and great art and culture we all share.
That’s the idea behind the Tin Pan Alley Art Collection. The collection continues to grow, and currently features work from Jesse Roberts, Sheila Dunn, Taylor Rose, Andrew Wachs, Megan McGuinness, as well as several others. These artists were chosen for their talent, vision, and passion for Bend, and you’ll find their work adorning parking garage walls and alleyways in Downtown Bend.
