When the Denver Convention Center held a competition for a public artwork that would encourage visitors to the center to explore the rest of the city, artist Lawrence Argent won. His commissioned work "I See What You Mean", more popularly known as "Big Blue Bear", is profiled in this eponymous documentary.
The film covers the development of the large scale art project, from its initial inspiration and the making of a model to its final creation and installation. Interviews with Denver public art director John Grant and fabricator Bill Kreysler provide a full description of their roles and assistance in the making of Big Blue Bear. Throughout this engaging film Argent displays the sense of fun and the collaboration involved in his creative artwork.
