“A Great Fit For Tahoe”
Ursa Mater has become the New Town Symbol of Tahoe City
We are greatly honored that our Burning Man 2017 honoraria project Ursa Mater has a permanent home in Tahoe City, CA. Special thanks to Tahoe Public Art and the generous local citizens who made this possible through a funding driving to keep the bears. The installation was installed in the town’s center park August 2018 for a year-long showing but the there was overwhelming demand to keep it there permanently. We and locals agree that Ursa Mater is a great fit for the Tahoe Region. Tahoe Public Art has a goal to bring more art into the Tahoe region. They are a delightful group to work with and we applaud their efforts.
Ursa Mater is easily spotted from the #89 (West Lake Boulevard) in the middle of town at Heritage Plaza. It’s a stunning location that overlooks Lake Tahoe and nearby walkways that lead to the beach.
