Peabody Opera House

9/8/11-Using great care, Paric construction crews installed two limestone bears outside the 14th St. entrance to the Peabody Opera House, which has a scheduled Grand Opening of October 1st. Sculptors Chris Cassimatis and Jeff Metz both spent a couple of months carving each bear out of 9,000 lb. blocks of Indiana limestone. Metz stated, "One of the major reasons I devoted myself to sculpture was to leave a positive trace that I was here, and I'm proud that these new monuments are an example of that." The familar bears guarding the Market St. entrance to the Opera House are made from the same material and still look like new after 78 years. (KMOX/Brett Blume)
