Title: Julie Marsh – Denver, CO – “Denver’s Blue Bear”

Description: “Denver’s Big Blue Bear,” officially titled “I See What You Mean,” has been peering into the Colorado Convention Center since 2005. Local artist Lawrence Argent wanted to create a piece of art that would embrace the Convention Center’s contemporary and dominant architecture. “I also wanted to bring the mountains [the idea of Colorado] down to Denver to prompt visitors’ awareness of the uniqueness of their location.” Why a 40-foot bear? A curious bear embodies the inquisitiveness and wonder that passersby might feel as they ponder what is going on inside the center: the exchange of information, ideas, and ideologies. The blue color was an accident. Argent originally intended to reflect the sandstone colors of Colorado. But a printout of the design came back blue, which he found much more exciting. This public art cost $424,000 and was constructed in California but has become an iconic symbol of Denver and Colorado
