Public art meets public service in downtown Paso Robles
PASO ROBLES, CA, March 29, 2022– The City of Paso Robles is holding a ceremony to dedicate the new "Norma's Alley" arch installed to honor Norma Moye, Executive Director of the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association and lifelong benefactor of Paso Robles.
The arch was designed and created by local artist Dale Evers to celebrate Norma, downtown, and the arts in Paso Robles. Funding was provided by downtown property and business owners Robert Gilson and Nick Tompkins. It took more than two years of designing and creating the work of art before the famed local artist realized his vision to honor Norma and her contributions to the community.
The reception takes place on Tuesday, April 5 from 4:30-5:00 PM at the arch location - the "Norma's Way" alley on Pine Street between 12th and 13th.
Hosted by the Paso Robles City Council, the dedication ceremony will include brief comments by Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin, artist Dale Evers and Norma Moye herself.
A reception will follow at Dale Evers Studio at 1000 Park Street from 5-6 PM. Refreshments will be provided.
