Bristol has a vibrant arts community with Stokes Croft being a creative hub. There is a strong ethos for the Bearpit to promote local artists where work is showcased. Art has been a particular focus to allow the Bearpit to reinvent itself as an inspiring destination and an ever changing “outdoor gallery” of artworks is curated. Ursa the bear was revealed and has settled into her new home, welcoming all the traffic coming into the city.
