Dreaming big and delivering on a shared vision typically involves a lot of different people working together for a long period of time, especially when their goal is counter to the norm. Such was the case when a small group of arts supporters, including artist Ruth Allan, began envisioning ways to enhance Wenatchee’s riverfront in the mid- to late-1960s.
