The display is free to the public and includes more than 100 sculptures in a variety of mediums and styles. Established in 1984 by local sculptor, Dave Davis, Art on the Corner has become a cultural icon in Downtown Grand Junction.

The Grand Junction Art on the Corner Program received 48 submissions for the 2017-2018 33rd annual Art on the Corner Temporary Exhibit. Of those submissions, 13 pieces were selected. The pieces were curated by Avery Glassman, Programs and Exhibitions Curator, from the Western Colorado Center for the Arts.
