Playing in the Rain

Playing in the Rain, featured in The Register-Guard on January 30, 2019.

Local artist Kelsey Buzzell waits for the coating to dry on an art project she is creating in downtown Eugene this week. Buzzell said the coating will repel water when it rains to reveal her umbrella carrying turtle illustration against a rain darkened sidewalk. You can view the piece near the southwest corner of West Broadway Ave and Charnelton Street the next time it rains. The project called Rain Play Eugene by artists of Art City and sponsored by the City of Eugene is just one of the many art displays that will be going on in the downtown core during the month of January and February.

I was lucky enough to be able to participate in a really cool Art for All street installation which was organized by @artcityeugene. This art installation involved cutting a stencil, then applying a special “invisible spray” coating that repels water... making the art only show up when it rains/gets wet. Totally appropriate for rainy #Oregon winters and springs! There are several installs from different artists all around downtown Eugene. My install is in front of @noisettepk on Charnelton: go find it when it rains (and have a delicious pastry while you are at it). I’m calling this piece “Puddle Lover” and it was sponsored by Pearly Whites of Eugene. Rain Play is presented by ArtCity Eugene and City of Eugene Cultural Services.
