City | Santa Clarita Cycling Bear Dedication
The Santa Clarita City Council hosted an unveiling dedication to celebrate the installation of a Santa Clarita Cycling Bear painted by artist Frank Rock on the Chuck Pontius Commuter-Rail Trail adjacent to Valencia Boulevard.
In August 2004, the city of Santa Clarita developed the California Bear Project, a project to install life-size grizzly bear sculptures throughout the community.
Each fiberglass bear replica is over 10 feet in length and over 5 feet tall. The Santa Clarita Cycling Bear’s celebration takes place during National Bike Week.
Artist Frank Rock took inspiration for the design from the city’s participation in hosting stages in previous years of the AMGEN Tour of California.
It is the sixth bear sculpture to be displayed in the community. For more information on the California Bear Project, please visit SantaClaritaArts.com.(c) 2018 SCVTV
