Every two years, Art on the Avenues rotates into the collection visiting art pieces from renowned sculptors from around the U.S. and the northwest in particular. In all, there are 88 total sculptures around the greater Wenatchee area that have been added since 1995. Many have been purchased – the City of Wenatchee has purchased 27 pieces, Art on the Avenues has purchased another 27 and six pieces are privately owned and available for viewing at one of the many public spaces dedicated to the sculpture installations. This is the last year that new sculptures will be rotating into the collection.
