After a flurry of claims that residents don't like to see the nudity and following several vandal attacks to the penis, the city
says they plan on removing this long beloved sculpture that celebrates a native american bear dance ritual. But after interviewing a city
official, it looks more complicated than that.
The Santa Cruz Arts Commission is planning on removing this dearly loved local treasure. Help us save it.
27 years standing guard, let's now protect him.

I made a video about the artist and the sculpture, you can view it here:
