VALPARAISO — Artist Richard Kiebdaj is presenting his sculpture "Chamber Muse Synesthia" at a Celebration of the Arts dedication ceremony Oct. 5 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the West Gate Sculpture Garden, 1150 W. Lincolnway.

Performances by the Indiana Ballet Theatre and Valparaiso High School Ensemble will highlight a celebration of the visual and performing arts.

Kiebdaj’s sculpture is a symphony of cellos erupting in an explosion of colors.

A second sculpture "Chrysalis" is also being added to the West Gate Sculpture Garden.

This setting is against the historical backdrop of a local vintage manufacturing landmark. Constructed in 1910 as the Pitkin & Brooks Cut Glass Factory, this building also served for decades as the Valparaiso Technical Institute.

Light refreshments will be available.

The evening begins with a meet and greet of the artist at 5 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Walt Breitinger at 219-477-7526 or 219-462-5821 or email
