Barry Woods Johnston
January 2019 to Present
Ballerina welcomes all to town from her perch high atop the traffic Rotary where Haddon Avenue intersects with Ellis and Centre Streets. This life-size, 200- pound bronze beauty by Barry Woods Johnston was inspired by a moment in a Broadway production of “Dance” and seems to defy gravity. She was installed in January 2019 and dedicated during April 2019 Sculpture Month with help from the artist (non-ballerina on right) and local middle and high school dancers from Artists in Motion. Ballerina weighs 200 lbs.
