My last post was about green goop in Lake Erie. Now there’s a different kind of green goop in downtown Denver. Vandals poured green paint over our famous Big Blue Bear sculpture, titled “I See What You Mean,” that peers into the windows of the Colorado Convention Center.
Apparently the person or persons responsible got on the roof of the convention center above the bear and poured the paint from there. It will probably be Wednesday before the weather clears enough for workers to clean the sculpture.
Officials say it is uncommon for our public art to be defaced.
