Corvallis is full of public art, with more being added all the time. Art lovers could spend a whole day exploring Corvallis' art and still not find all of it - and while they were at it, we'd probably add a couple more pieces!

Below are a few resources to help you find our public art installations. Click on the titles or images for more information.

One of the artistic attractions in Corvallis, Oregon is the Corvallis Mural Project, which is splashing colorful murals all across Corvallis. Jennifer Moreland, inspired by the gorgeous murals she found all over Los Angeles, launched the Corvallis Mural Project in 2016. Thanks to Moreland’s efforts, more than 20 stunning murals now dot downtown Corvallis, with more on the way.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times created a map of Corvallis' many murals that you can download and print. It lists 28 of our local murals and was printed in 2017, so it's missing a few, but it's a great print option to get you started.
