All sculptures are to be for sale. In its first 4 years, Sculpture Walk Peoria has sold 9 sculptures. We anticipate additional sales.
Sculptures will be placed in highly visible locations along Washington Street in close proximity to the Peoria Riverfront Museum which features over a dozen permanent pieces of outdoor public art. The Peoria Warehouse District has been included on the National Register of Historic Places.
