Angela Ridgway's Sculpture Graces Broadway

We are so proud that a sculpture by one of our artists, Angela Ridgway, was chosen by the city of Beaverton to be the latest pieces of public art installed by the city. The sculpture is titled "embrace your inner light"and is shown below as it appears on the street's brick plaza. A dedication ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, November 9, from 4 to 5 p.m. to present the artwork to the public. Join us and Mayor Doyle in honoring Angela and the team of people who made this possible.

Elaine Worden, Director of the Beaverton Arts Commission, led this project from beginning to end. She coordinated funding of the project by the City of Beaverton, the Beaverton Central NAC, the Beaverton Visioning Committee and the Beaverton Downtown Association; and was able to arrange for staff from the city's Public Works Department to fabricate the concrete pedestal and handle the in-house installation of the artwork.

Art On Broadway will host a reception in the gallery immediately following the dedication and offer a champagne toast to Angela and all those who made this project possible. Refreshments will be provided by the SubStation, Clockwork Rose Tea Emporium, and Art On Broadway Gallery.
