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 ‘Sky Woman’, the unique sculpture was designed to become an iconic Beaverton harbour landmark. Local, and internationally acclaimed artist, Ron Baird, generously offered his talents to create and produce this unique kinetic sculpture for the community.
Unfortunately, additional consultations coupled with current events prompted the committee to reconsider both the design and the location for the sculpture. Subsequently, the artist graciously and generously offered to create a new sculpture to replace the original design. 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.
We are excited to announce the new and iconic, state of the art kinetic sculpture that will take its place at the Beaverton Harbour.
