ARTscapes, a project of Methow Arts Alliance, is a creative response to economic hard times. It transforms empty storefronts and vacant space into dynamic points of interest through artistic energy and enterprise, making towns in Okanogan County stronger and more active.

Projects will take place in participating towns throughout Okanogan County. (Artwork in photo by Steve Ward, Laura Karcher, Barry Stromberger and Jessica Dietz.)
