Peg Egan Performing Art Center
The Peg Egan Performing Art Center (PAC) took shape from 2005-2007 at the 6.2 acre Eames Cherry View Park, opening in 2008. The park itself was generously donated by over 40 Egg Harbor resident who are acknowledged in a plaque near the path to the PAC. The park setting is on a hillside that overlooks the Green Bay waters with the PAC located at the lower part of the hill. Audiences view performances from a grassy slopping green lawn.
The designer was Ralph Bergman from Portside Builders. The signature "wave" look of the roof is from a company in Alabama. It took weeks of steaming to bend the laminated strands into the rolling waves. A dedicated tractor trailer brought the piece north from Alabama. People still remember the excitement of watching the truck's arrival.
A wonderful YouTube video has the history of how it was established and how it all works for all who visit Egg Harbor.
This sculpture greets visitors at the entrance. The inscription reads:
Jeffrey Olson, Artist
Donated by the artist
to the Village of Egg Harbor
for the enjoyment of all
The Sunset Concert series is offered on Sunday evenings each year at the Peg Egan PAC. A variety of talent from blues to jazz to country is offered. The summer 2020 concerts were cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
