Launched in 2016, WAVE was conceived by Breckenridge Creative Arts as an event to showcase contemporary, interactive art within the context of the local landscape, with temporary installations to activate the popular riverfront area. In addition to serving as the kick-off event to the town’s busy summer cultural season, WAVE once again promises to spark imaginations with the latest technologies and creative practice, while helping redefine the way people think about and experience public art.

“This event builds on our success with other nature-inspired activities as well as supports our commitment to programs that focus on environmental and place-based relevancy,” said Robb Woulfe, President, and CEO of Breckenridge Creative Arts. “The artworks featured in this year’s WAVE festival explore various ecological topics that are important to both local residents as well as guests who visit our beautiful mountain community.”
