Seeing Nature by Brandon Vickerd
The public art for Bear Creek Stadium will be an artwork called Seeing Nature by Brandon Vickerd, consisting of large bronze animals that will be mounted on the east wall of the new facility. A bear, fox, rabbits, and otters will sit on the wall as if defying gravity gazing at children at the adjacent playground and waterpark, and at spectators as they enter the stadium. Seeing Nature will create a sense of joy and wonder, but also intends to foster an in-depth reflection on the relationship between humans, animals, and nature more broadly. This artwork is expected to be installed in the spring of 2024.
