Dancing in the streets of Haddonfield

Haddonfield’s hadrosaurus now has a dance partner.  A life-sized bronze ballerina statue was recently installed in the borough’s downtown.

The six-foot, two-hundred pound bronze dancer, created by Baltimore-based artist Barry Woods Johnston, is centrally located at the intersection of Haddon Ave. and Ellis Street.

It was donated by The Haddonfield Outdoor Sculpture Trust (HOST), a nonprofit organization that has populated the downtown with more than 20 rotational, contemporary outdoor sculptures in recent years. The piece is the latest addition to an initiative to transform the borough with public displays of art.

“Haddonfield is about so much more than our excellent schools, abundant history and amazing celebrations — we are also a showcase for public art,” says HOST founder and chairman Stuart Harting. “The statue will serve as a symbol of our borough-wide commitment to the arts and all the ways that art enriches our lives.”
