Beaverton Harbour Sculpture Project
In 2017, in honour of Canada’s Sesquicentennial. Beaverton Special Events, in partnership with the community, launched an ambitious public art project. Entitled ‘Skywoman’, this unique sculpture was designed to become an iconic Beaverton Harbour landmark. Local and internationally acclaimed artist Ron Baird generously offered his talents and time to design and create this unique kinetic sculpture for the community. Unfortunately, several events prompted the committee to reconsider the design for this piece and the artist graciously offered to bring another concept to life.
In June 2021, Council approved and adopted the BHAC’s recommendation to accept the public art donation by Ron Baird and the Beaverton Special Events for the Beaverton Harbour.
In early 2022, the concept design for ‘The Wishing Tower’ was approved by Brock Township Council and included in the framework for the Harbour Master Plan.
We are excited to announce the new and iconic, state of the art kinetic sculpture that will take its place at the Beaverton Harbour.
