Telluride's New Penny Bear

Posted by Anna Wilson on Monday, July 29th, 2019 at 2:25pm

From the Telluride Daily Planet:

Look out! There’s a 6,000-pound grizzly bear — Ursa Ravus — looming 15 skyward at 635 East Colorado Avenue. The Gluckstern family commissioned Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson Art of Hayward, California, to build and install the original sculpture, the first sanctioned public art installation in Telluride.  

It took self-taught artists Lisa and Robert Ferguson four months to build Ursa Ravus whose “fur” is comprised of over 187,000 pennies.

Steve Cieciuch assisted the Glucksterns with the purchase of this home (where the penny bear now resides), as well as with selling their previous home on North Oak Street. Read more about their successful sale HERE.
