Art in the Valley


Art Walla is committed to supporting arts of every nature in the Walla Walla Valley,

from visual to performance, all art enriches our community and the human experience.

Visual Art


The Walla Walla Valley's local business owners have a long history of providing local artists with display options within their respective establishments.  The arrangement is mutually beneficial; their patrons are connected with fine local art, and the local artists are connected with potential buyers.  Here is a list of some of the local businesses that support the arts in this way.  (We do our best to keep this information up to date, so please tell us if you see an error or something that is out of date.  Thanks!)

Public Art in the Valley

In 1997, ArtWalla began work with City officials to create the ordinance #95-18, "Arts Collection Management," providing the process for public art acquisition. Public art creates a backdrop of beauty and inspiration for our award-winning historic downtown and growing reputation, not only for world-class wine and stimulating cultural events, but as one of the "Best Small Art Towns" in America. To enhance the educational benefit, ArtWalla produced the Public Art Walking Tour and Coloring Book. Download it here for your use.

Whitman College campus has an extensive collection of outdoor sculptures. You can find their sculpture map here.
