Celebrate Oregon! by artist Liza Burns is a vibrant tapestry of Oregon geography into which are woven 127 symbols representing different aspects of our collective arts, heritage, history, and cultural practices. It is the result of a year-long, inclusive process that began with a group of statewide nominators sharing the creative brief with artists and designers.
A new license plate design that celebrates Oregon and the diversity of its culture will debut on Oct. 1 in recognition of the Oregon Cultural Trust’s 20th Anniversary. The artwork for the license plate, created by Liza Burns of Eugene, will be installed as full-scale murals at the Eugene, Medford, Portland, and Redmond airports through a partnership with GreenCars.com, a learning and marketplace destination for sustainable transportation. In addition, a 38-foot outdoor banner will be installed at the Northwest Film Center at the Portland Art Museum.
