Bronze SculpturingWhistler Village Bears by Mike Tyler


Bear Affection - Whistler Village

Commissioned by jury, for the resort municipality of Whistler, as part of their "Art in The Park" series in the summer of 2009.

A call to artists was publicly announced, and any artist was allowed to submit a proposal. Selected by jury, 'Bear Affection' was installed in November, 2009.

The original shape was made using foam and plastercine. Then a mold was created using silicone and fiberglass. Finally, a cold-cast bronze technique was used to create the sculpture.
