Toledo Artist Honored In Community Mural


The ART Toledo committee is pleased to announce an exciting highlight for the upcoming Art, Oysters & Brews event on Saturday, August 5th - a special presentation of the newest community mural dedicated to the esteemed Toledo artist, Michael Gibbons. Created by the talented local artist, Casey McEneny, the mural aims to pay homage to Michael Gibbons' artistic legacy and further enrich Toledo's vibrant artistic community.


This year marks the third summer of the highly anticipated Art, Oysters & Brews events, and the ART Toledo committee is delighted to continue this dynamic community festival, bringing

together residents and visitors alike for a day of artistic celebration on Main Street in Toledo.

The August 5th event will be the second installment in the three-part Art, Oysters & Brews

summer series. From Noon to 5:00 pm, the streets of Toledo will come alive with an array of

activities and attractions, all set to the backdrop of beautiful art, cold local beers, and

wonderful food vendors offering fresh Oregon oysters and more.


The centerpiece of the August event will be the unveiling of the Michael Gibbons mural,

meticulously crafted by Casey McEneny. Michael Gibbons, a revered figure in Toledo's art

community, has left an unforgettable mark through his extraordinary talent and dedication to

his craft. The mural's creation serves as a testament to his artistic legacy and will serve as a

source of inspiration for generations to come. The presentation is set to begin at 1:30pm on

August 5th in front of the mural, located across from City Hall on Main Street. The Yaquina

River Museum of Art will be hosting a reception following the presentation at their 1887

Schoolhouse located at 151 NE Alder Street, with complimentary cake and champagne to

celebrate.


In addition to the mural presentation, the Art, Oysters & Brews event will feature regional

artists showcasing their unique and diverse art pieces, offering attendees an opportunity to

explore and appreciate local creativity. Youngsters will have the chance to channel their inner artists by participating in a special community mural project that will be displayed on Main Street all year! A Lincoln County 4H petting zoo will add some extra fun and cuteness to the event, and the Toledo Library will have an awesome kids activity area.


Attendees can groove to the rhythm of live music throughout the day, with performances by musicians Tyler Spencer, Dave Cowden, and the band Revel'n! The Art, Oysters & Brews event is open to all, and admission is free. The ART Toledo committee invites residents and visitors to come together on Main Street on Saturday, August 5th, between 12:00pm and 5:00pm, to celebrate the beauty of art, the flavors of local brews and seafood, and the Toledo community.
