From the sculpture website:
""Embrace Your Inner Light" Broadway Plaza, SW Broadway St & West St, Fall 2016
Inside each of us is a light that shines - It isn’t always visible to others, but it’s always there. - Embrace yours and the brilliance it gives you." - Angela Ridgway
Growing up in Virginia, Angela Ridgway never thought about being an artist. Her goal was logical: go to college and get a good job. But after getting a glimpse of welding in a college course, her interest in metal work sparked. That was her first hands on experience. She was mesmerized by turning metal into a red hot molten puddle. That image stayed with her through college and work in the corporate world in California and abroad. Finally, she enrolled in classes at the community college to learn both welding and metal art techniques."
