About Palisade Art Vision, PAV
PAV was formed in 2015 by a group of local citizens and artists to promote and embrace "Art as a part of everyday life."  PAV envisioned an outdoor sculpture program to promote a visible aesthetic voice and to supplement the agriculture tourism of Palisade.  With the collaboration of the Town of Palisade Government, Palisade Chamber of Commerce, local businesses, art galleries and artists, PAV has grown from four temporary pieces to over a dozen and has purchased or sold five of the exhibited sculptures.
