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.
