EVENTS & HOURS
October Art @ thump
We’re excited to extend into October the mixed media show of artist, designer and activist Euijin Gray. Her show — entitled “being. small. simple. green.” — is inspired by months spent in the green, wet forest of Tennessee and incorporates acrylics, photos, drawings, handmade paper, wood, canvas and board.
Fri. Oct. 28, OPEN LATE: Cross Culture Caminata – Day of the Dead Inspired Alters + DJ bPollen
(Event details below.)
Sun. 10/23, 1:30-2:30pm: Monthly Public Coffee Tasting
Our Public Coffee Tasting is back from summer vacation! This fun, informal exploration of coffees from around the world, uses the tasting and evaluation techniques of professional coffee cuppers. Bring a friend and join us!
Fri. 10/28, 5:00-9:00pm: Cross Culture Caminata Art Walk
Thump welcomes the Cross Culture Caminata, a Day of the Dead inspired celebration of bicycles, art and culture, featuring live DJ music by bPollen. According to organizers, downtown Bend’s Cross Culture Caminata is “part art walk, part pub crawl, part street parade inspired by Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).” Maps will be available throughout downtown and will provide information about artists, as well as additional street festivities.
With a nod to the traditional altars of Dia de los Muertos, selected local artists will be installing interpretive pieces throughout downtown Bend businesses, including Thump Coffee, prior to October 27. This special art walk is part of a three-day-long Day of the Dead Cyclocross Festival, including cyclocross bike races in the Old Mill District, Cross Culture Caminata Art Walk in downtown Bend, and the Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show. Artworks will stay up in participating businesses thru Halloween day and then be relocated to Arts Central for exhibit from November 1 – 28.

Find Your Wish on Flickr
The wooden planks swaying from thump’s ceiling capturing brief wishes from passersby, are as much of what makes thump, thump as any delicious drinks we serve. Have you ever wondered what happens to those wishes or how many have been created? Well, local artist and “Wishes” installation creator Mark Bernahl rotates the wishes every couple of months, adding new ones, removing old ones. He has kept every single wish that has been rotated out since the “Wishes” inception more than four years ago! And, he has scanned them! You can view more than 5,000 of them here. If you wrote a wish sometime in the last four years, go to our Flickr site and see if you can find it. Over 5,000 and counting are on the site! And . . . let us know if your wish came true!
ART: Ongoing “Sharing The Road” Poster Series Display
The “Sharing the Road” poster series depicts what drivers and cyclists can do to avoid accidents. A $5000 grant was awarded to the Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization to inform cyclists and drivers and help prevent crashes on our roads. City of Bend, citizens, advocates and employees worked as a group to get bike riders asking: “Am I doing this right?” and “Is this safe?” and “What are the rules?” The Posters to Coasters campaign, designed by Carrrrrlos, does that in a visually striking way. The campaign consists of posters, coasters and video. The prominent concerns with riding a bike in Bend are wrong way riding, drunk riding and night riding without lights. These actions cause the most cycling injuries and fatalities nationwide.
