February 2014 Participating Venues
Arts Walk February 7th, 5 – 7 pm
Installations through February free
Wenatchee’s Art Walk begins its fourth season. The idea is a simple one. By joining many individual venues into an organized art walk, the collective effort magnifies our community’s interest and cultural awareness in the arts. The hope is to move people around town into different venues that offer different art experiences.
