More Local "Fauna"

What's with the blue animals? This piece, about the same size, is perhaps more charming. It also has its share of detractors, though, apparently. (I might not want to have a desk by the window on this side of the building!)

This work is called "I See What You Mean" although it is of course more commonly known as "The Big Blue Bear." The artist is Lawrence Argent.

See more Denver public art here (a site which is also the source of this photo, which accompanied a press release).

It's by the convention center, downtown. See http://www.denvergov.org/Public_Art_Program/RecentInstallations/RecentInstallations9/tabid/392940/Default.aspx

Hmm, that didn't work. Try this and paste it together:

Does this one have big, scary, red eyes too?

Marti said...

Actually, I think he has no eyes at all. He's solid blue. Or maybe you could say he has blue eyes...
