The Dansa Sculpture
The Dansa Sculpture is the last artistically structures to be added to the upper area of Edgewater. It was sculpted sometime in the early nineteen-eighties. I will update this sculpture as I get the information. The sculpture weights 18 thousand pounds
Oh yeah, there is another category of art work at Edgewater, that I almost forgot; and it is seen from time to time. And its what I call beach art. This art is sometimes the best.. this picture represents just a small portion of some of the beach art, I have witnessed . Some of the art is quite extensive, and unique. And naturally the artists is usually unknown >

This statue is located at
Artist Barton: I will get back with you about this piece of art work. it has an interesting story behind it. This Stone sculpture is located at lower Edgewater just east of the fishing pier that juts out in to lake Erie... it is in and amongst the rip rap
This is Doug I caught him in a inspirational moment. He is one of many very talented artist who comes to Edgewater. This photo was taken at the highest point of the park. Which is the buff above Perkin's Beach adjacent to Edgewater Drive.
