Photo: The Pondering Grizzly City Hall Winnipeg Manitoba Canada

A statue entitled 'The Pondering Grizzly' by Canadian artist Clarence Tillenius, part of the Manitoba-wide 'Bears on Broadway' collection, stands outside the City Hall with a teepee in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada.

Outside of City Hall, in downtown Winnipeg, stands one of the 'Bears on Broadway' statues - this one entitled 'The Pondering Grizzly'. It is a bear painted by Canadian artist and environmentalist, Clarence Tillenius. The teepee was erected in front of the City Hall for the National Aboriginal Day celebrations.

Tillenius painted the bear in 2005, for a fundraising project called 'Knights of the Polar Circle', which was part of a fundraiser for Cancer Care Manitoba. This grizzly bear was the only grizzly in the collection, the rest being polar bears, and was moved to its current place outside City Hall after the project was over. Artist Peter Sawatzky added the hump and the claws to the grizzly after.

The 'Bears on Broadway' project was to commemerate the 75th year of the Cancer Care Manitoba foundation, and it placed 62 bears on Broadway Street from the CN Station to Memorial Boulevard. ... continue below the picture...

... The project included students and established artists alike and was designed to raise money for the cancer campaign. This in fact led to similar campaigns in other Canadian cities, with different animals being used.

Clarence Tillenius is one of Canada's most established artists and he continues working to this day.
