Renowned Bay Area author Dave Eggers commissioned Gizmo Art Production, Inc. to create this one of a kind metal bear for the 2016 Outside Lands Arts & Music Festival in Golden Gate Park. The Bear is made of aluminum and was fabricated at Gizmo’s studio in the Bay View. Dave had originally made his own bear using chicken wire and fur but wanted something sturdier for festival goers to enjoy during the 3-day event.
Author and artist Dave Eggers creation has come to life as a mobile human-driven kinetic sculpture. Unveiled at the 2016 Music and Arts festival, Outside Lands at the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The metal bear bike or “bearcycle” was built by Gizmo Art Productions in the Bayview District
