Bears Oh My Sponsors

Join The Fun!

Be a vital part of the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette’s most anticipated summer event, BEARS oh my!  This public art project will release stylized sculptured bears onto the streets of Lafayette and West Lafayette through the summer of 2015. The BEARS oh my!  project raises awareness of the importance of public art in Greater Lafayette and helps support the Art Museum’s many educational activities and programs.

Please consider the following levels of sponsorship:  

  • Sponsorship at the $5,000 level guarantees the sculpture becomes your property at the end of the project.

  • Sponsorship at the $2,500 cash or in-kind or sponsorship will be acknowledged with a plaque recognizing the sponsorship throughout the summer until the bear’s auction at the gala closing event in support of the Art Museum

 This exhibition continues the fun and tradition of community art projects by the Art Museum in the Greater Lafayette area:  Hog Wild! In 2003, Frog Follies in 2005, Dog Days of Summer in 2009 and Chair-ity in 2011.
