Long Description:
Acro Bears

Acro Bears is the newest addition to Rossland's collection of wonderful sculptures; it was placed September 2014

Arco Bears was created by Nelson artist John McKinnon, known for his sculptures throughout the area. He is often a contributor in the Castlegar Sculpture Walk.

The inspiration for Acro Bears came naturally as Rossland's mascot is the black bear.

John McKinnon was one of fifteen proposals for the commission of Rossland's newest sculpture.

Acro Bears were made with welded pieces of steel and the teeth and claws are made in bronze. McKinnon started this creation about a year ago. He has been creating artwork for over 40 years and uses a wide range of materials.

Each year John McKinnon displays he many talents by creating gigantic sand sculptures in Castlegar.
