The sculpture models created by Bryan Saren, the artist selected by the town council for the RAMP project, were created with Ridgway in mind. From left: “Heart” symbolizes Ridgway at the middle of several converging pathways. “Harvest” represents the agricultural history and culture of the town. “Focus” is the largest of Saren’s sculptures and will light up at certain times of the day. “Resource” was created with water and wind as an inspiration. “Endemic” was crafted to be a headdress of the native people of the Ridgway area.
