Forage - Parade of Bears 2016, Dawn Gerety

Parade of Bears 2016

This is my painted bear for Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in support of the 24th International Conference on Bear Research & Management held in Anchorage during the summer of 2016. Bear forms decorated by local artists were displayed in downtown Anchorage at local businesses. My bear design was inspired by the food items found in a brown bears diet including razor clams, salmon, berries and more. You can visit “Forage” year-round at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.
