Haddonfield Installs Bronze Ballerina SculptureLast Edited:
Residents and visitors of Haddonfield will get to take in the beauty of a newly installed piece of artwork as they stroll through the downtown area.
On Tuesday, January 2nd, local officials installed a new life-size bronze sculpture of a ballerina in the Welcome to Haddonfield circle at the intersection of Haddon Avenue and Ellis Street in downtown Haddonfield.
The sculpture was donated by the Haddonfield Outdoor Sculpture Trust.
Officials say the sculpture will not only give visitors something to enjoy on their strolls, but will also showcase the importance of public art.
"It's in a location that's welcoming people to Haddonfield and it's saying to people we're not just about history and schools and celebrations but we're also about public art and our focus is in bringing people to Haddonfield to experience the showcase of public art," said Stuart Harting chairman of the Haddonfield Outdoor Sculpture Trust.
The more than 200 pound, six-foot tall ballerina sculpture was created by renowned artist Barry Woods Johnston.
Haddonfield has had more than 20 rotational, contemporary outdoor sculptures.
