Directions: Google Maps and other online mapping programs can have a problem directing you to the VAC. Here are the easiest directions to follow: heading north or south on Hwy. 101, turn west on NW 3rd St. Proceed straight down the hill. At the second stop sign, turn right. One short block later, turn left under Nye Beach archway. Proceed straight to Nye Beach turnaround and parking lot. The VAC is the large blue and gray building off the turnaround. To director offices and upper parking lot: turn west of Hwy. 101 at NW 3rd St. Head down hill. At second stop sign, continue straight 1.5 blocks, with the Sylvia Beach Hotel remaining on your left. The VAC administrative offices can be accessed through the smaller, upper parking lot.
Mark your calendar for the fifth annual Nye Beach Banner Auction presented by the Nye Beach Merchants Association (NBMA) from 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10 at the Newport Visual Arts Center, Room 205. Bidding ends at 7 p.m.
The auction of banners created by local artists benefits Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) education projects. Enjoy entertainment by local musicians and food donated by Nye Beach restaurants.
Spearheaded by Veronica Willemin, the banner project is supported by OCCA and the NBMA. Look for the 2013 Banner Booklet (with photos of the banners and bios of the artists, designed by Jennifer Larsen), which is $6, at Jovi, the VAC, and other businesses in Nye Beach.
