Don Kennell and Lisa Adler Longview the Polar Bear, 2018 Located at the Glow Plaza

Longview the polar bear serves as an arctic ambassador, illuminating the correlation between habitat loss and our carbon footprint. This striking figure is constructed from steel, repurposed from 100 recycled car hoods, and adorned with glass eyes. A notable landmark within Reno's Neon Line District, "Longview the Polar Bear" stands as a distinct and powerful representation of the urgent environmental message it conveys.

It was created by Don Kennell and Lisa Adler as an icon for global warming. This public artwork was designed to capture people’s imagination and inspire people to take action to save the polar bears from climate change and extinction.
