First, Don Kennell and Lisa Adler fell in love. Then they made an art car. Then they had a couple of babies. They both did their graduate work at Rutgers University, he in art, she in the social sciences. This was in the nineties. They have been collaborators ever since. Love is a founding principle of their partnership and of the company that they run today. [from the artist's website]
Long View Polar Bear
Long View Polar Bear, Artists: Don Kennell And Lisa Adler, American Artists, From Santa Fe, New Mexico, Sculpture Located At Ferry Building Plaza, San Francisco, California

We are building a polar bear out of car hoods to show the connection between carbon footprint and habitat loss. We are creating an icon to fight global warming. This ambassador from the Arctic will tour the country to bring the public out. A 35-foot polar bear will inspire people with common concerns to share a common experience. We will partner with local groups where the sculpture is installed to share information about practical solutions for reducing carbon footprint.[from the sculpture's website]
