Fodor's Pacific Northwest
University of Oregon
University of Oregon Review
The true heart of Eugene lies southeast of the city center at its university. Several fine old buildings can be seen on the 250-acre campus; Deady Hall, built in 1876, is the oldest. More than 400 varieties of trees grace the bucolic grounds, along with outdoor sculptures that include The Pioneer and The Pioneer Mother. The two bronze figures by Alexander Phimster Proctor were dedicated to the men and women who settled the Oregon Territory and less than a generation later founded the university.
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. Works from the 20th and 21st centuries are a specialty in these handsome galleries, which feature works by many leading Pacific Northwest artists. European, Korean, Chinese, and Japanese works are also on view, as are 300 works commissioned by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s and '40s. 1430 Johnson La., 97403. 541/346–3027. jsma.uoregon.edu. $5. Tues. and Thurs.–Sun. 11–5, Wed. 11–8.
University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History. Relics of a more local nature are on display at the University of Oregon Museum of Natural History, devoted to Pacific Northwest anthropology and the natural sciences. Its highlights include the fossil collection of Thomas Condon, Oregon's first geologist, and a pair of 9,000-year-old sandals made of sgaebrush. 1680 E. 15th Ave., 97403. 541/346–3024. www.natural-history.uoregon.edu. $3, free on Wed.
