Oh Cuba I Bearly Knew Ya….Bill
United Buddy Bears is an art project to promote tolerance and understanding among nations, cultures and religions. The 128 bears represent countries recognized by the United Nations.
Each bear is created by an artist of its country. They stand “hand in hand” symbolizing the future vision of a peaceful world. Each bear stands for the people and their culture, but not their political system.
The tour consists of 28 exhibitions on 5 continents. 2004; Hong Kong, Instanbul, Kitzbühel 2005: Tokyo, Seoul, 2006; Sydney, Vienna, 2007; Cairo, Jerusalem, 2008; Warsaw, Stuttgart, Pyongyan 2009; Buenos Aires, Montevideo 2010: Astana, Helsinki, 2011: Sofia, Kuala Lampur 2012: New Delhi, St. Petersburg, Paris. 2015: Cuba
