Bear Fever in Boyertown, PA, apparently has no cure! The popular public art project, begun in 2003 with the mission of developing cohesiveness and community spirit, continues to mount fiberglass bears all over Boyertown with 71 bears and counting. Two new bears will debut in 2017.
Jane Stahl, co-coordinator of the project and Director of Community Relations for Studio B Fine Art Gallery in Boyertown, will share how the project began, information about the artists and sponsors of the bears, and the inspiration the project has provided toward the renaissance of art-related businesses and activities that Boyertown now supports.
