Long Description:
Located at the Grants Pass Chamber of Commerce / Visitor Center is painted bear sculpture that contains depictions of Grants Pass' sister city, Rubtsovsk, Russia. I located a website that highlights the artist of this bear sculpture, Janet Higgins, here. I also located an art brochure in PDF format here that showcases some interesting art around Grants Pass and this bear sculpture is on the program. In addition, I also located another website here devoted to the 2003 Bear Fest that helped to promote money for non-profit organizations. 21 bears were commissioned by local artists and this Sister City bear was one of them.

This bear is one of many painted bear sculptures located throughout the city of Grants Pass, some by artist Janet Higgins, so be on the lookout for other bears if you happen to pass through!
