Craven Arts Council & Gallery is pleased to host the unveiling of New Bern’s latest Bear Town Bear. “Larry” is the area’s 80th Bear and will make his home at the New Bern KOA Campground, which was voted the KOA 2019 Campground of the Year. The Bear was created to honor the beloved long-time, late manager Larry Holtzclaw. The Bear was designed and painted by artist Brandy Baxter based on her collaboration with Bonnie Day of Wilmington KOA. We invite the public to attend this unveiling to welcome “Larry” to our area, meet the artist, and the staff of the KOA.
