If we could press pause on Eugene for moment, what would it look like? Pause is a series of stories and thoughts from the community, expressed with ink and thread. It explores how small moments, over time, have built our community. Community members are interviewed, then pieces are made with their reflections and shared experiences.

Pause grew out of the collective moment we took during the COVID-19 pandemic. This sudden moment of change forced us to shift, adapt, and consider new ways of being. By exploring what brings us joy, grief, gratitude, and heartbreak helps us build a strong, resilient community.

Pause is made possible with support from ArtCity
