Public Art Commission update on statues

Golden's Public Art Commission continues discussion on the six statues proposed for removal.

The statues are Bear and Two Cubs, Brother and Sister at the Rodeo, Eddie at Bat, Kids Sledding, Two Deer and Victorian Dress-Up. All are located along Clear Creek's streamside walking path in downtown Golden.

The commission has received a report from an expert which confirmed the six statues are not authentic — meaning they are not unique or are replicas of original art — and/or could have been made with less-than-desirable materials, such as lead Chinese casting.

The commission decided at its June 2 meeting more research needs to be done concerning copyright laws. In the meanwhile, the statues will stay on display.

No date has been set for follow-up discussion.
