Brought to Lincoln City by The Elisabeth Jones Art Center

Wednesday, July 21 2021 @ 11AM

Take a stroll along the coast this July, with a free outdoor exhibition of hundreds of paintings, on the lawn at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Brought to Lincoln City by The Elisabeth Jones Art Center, the “For the Seventh Generation” Outdoor Art Exhibit is a pano-mural, 2 feet tall and ⅓ mile long, of the entire western coastline of the United States. You can start your walk in Tijuana, passing by the Huntington Beach Pier, San Francisco Bay, Cascade Head, Haystack Rock, Astoria Bridge, and Puget Sound before ending your trek with a view of the Peace Arch on the Canadian border. Other works will be on display and for sale inside the center. Along with the mural, the Elisabeth Jones Art Center will screen our very first For the Seventh Generation Film Festival, featuring submissions from artists all along the coast. Accompanying the films will be a spoken word performance. For information, call the center at 541-994-9994.
