Koyuk Sculpture

Gateway Guardian: Manitou Springs Arts Council Brings Beloved Bear Sculpture Back

Manitou Springs Arts Council (MSAC) and Manitou Springs Creative District (MSCD) announced today that “Koyuk,” a beloved stone sculpture by Lake George artist John Kessler, is returning to the community as part of the permanent public art collection.

“When the Arts Council installed ‘Koyuk’ as part of their ‘Art on the Avenue’ program, the public fell in love with this gentle presence,” said Creative District interim recovery director/executive director Becca Sickbert. “We’re delighted to welcome back the bear to Manitou Avenue this week!”
