Bearfootin’ Public Art Walk

A tremendous thanks to our 2018 Bear Sponsors.

This year’s bears represented a host of non-profits, including some familiar names and some not so familiar to the Bearfootin’ Public Art Walk. We are always thrilled to see the variety of organizations that participate in Bearfootin’!

The auction was great fun. Big THANK YOU to all bidders, our Auctioneer John Lynn, Friends of Downtown volunteers and of course the fabulous sponsors and artists that make this event a success!
