Bears by the Lake ...a CeleBEARtion
This appears to be a no brainer. I spent a dreary May morning taking pictures of the bears currently on display and every bear east of Ski Run Blvd had people gathered around taking pictures already. In short, these bears are popular, and if they're in any kind of shape at the end of the year they're going to bring in a small fortune for some great causes (local youth organizations).The fifty bears will be auctioned off in mid October with minimum opening bids of $2,000. With that said, let's keep a close eye on our fiberglass buddies out there because some have already fallen victim to vandalism and graffiti. Overall, we give the LTVA a big thumbs up for some innovative thinking.
Check out the Bears by the Lake web site for lots more information about the public art display, artist details, merchandise, and the October auction.
View our Bears by the Lake Gallery (requires flash player). As more bears go up, we'll be sure to add them to the gallery.
