The sculpture contains the names of all the staff, students, parents and grandparents at Immaculata School.

The longtime public art project features unique bear (or other animal) sculptures painted by local artists and placed along the 16 blocks that comprise Main Street in downtown Hendersonville. Funds raised from the art walk and auction organized by Historic Downtown Hendersonville raises money for local charities.
