The City of Mission Viejo is inviting residents of all ages to take part in its exciting “Bears About Town” community project. This collaborative community-based art project involves creating nine bear art sculptures that will be adorned with mosaics incorporating images that represent a unique segment of the community and different ethnicities within Mission Viejo.
This one-of-a-kind community project complements other successful public art projects the City has embarked upon in the last decade. Under the creative and artful eyes of artists Aileen May and Joy Aldrich, residents will help produce the community bears that will be nestled along the median island and right-of-way area between Pacific Hills Drive and Estanciero along Marguerite Parkway. The bears will be placed near Oso Creek and the trail, the central spine of Mission Viejo.
On Friday, the talented artists will work at the Mission Viejo Farmers Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Civic Center courtyard at 200 Civic Center. Individuals and groups interested in working on a bear or “adopting” one should contact Assistant City Manager/Director of Public Services Keith Rattay at 949-470-3095 or email@example.com.
