Piles of sticks and stones and cones and sheep wool all became objects of art on the waterfront park Tuesday, a project for fifth-graders by
the Art on the Avenue group.
And later this fall every Wenatchee fifth-grade student will get to sculpt in clay, their work cast into bronze, a major project by the same group.
Adele Wolford, who started the art project 20 years ago, is in the process of reorganizing and expanding the board of this non-profit organization.
Some 70 or more pieces of sculpture are currently scattered around the two cities,
two-thirds of them permanent, the rest on a two-year loan basis. They have been relatively free of vandalism, but require yearly maintenance.
The sculpture collection at the foot of the RiverWalk Crossing at the foot of First Street is a waterfront attraction, with the big bronze foot the star.
