Art on the Avenues mapped out
WENATCHEE — Walking tour maps to the 2009-2010 Art on the Avenues display are now available from rack locations, including the Fifth Street access to the Loop Trail, the trail sculpture garden and the Wenatchee Center fountain plaza. The brochure lists all 74 pieces in the public art project, divided into zones for easier strolling. The nonprofit Art on the Avenues plans to add a new sculpture, Kevin Pettelle’s “Ped,” to the sculpture garden in October. Other map locations are the Wenatchee Chamber of Commerce, Wenatchee Downtown Association, the Wenatchee Visitor and Convention Bureau and the Wenatchee Center lobby.
