The Bear is Back!

Chad Glashoff and Alex Nolan’s 7,200-pound kinetic, interactive bear stands almost 12-feet tall. The sculpture, entitled “Ursus Redivivus, Recycled Bear” is constructed almost entirely from scrap metal from escalators salvaged during a Berkeley department store remodel and recycled tools. It was located for many years in front of the library but was relocated for a few years in Lafayette. Now it’s back…in a new location…by the tennis courts. “It excites conversation, and references the rebuilding of an endangered species back into the wild,” Nolan says. Be sure to walk by and welcome back an old friend!
