With the help of Greenpeace, D.C. artist Mark Jenkins recently scared the bejesus out of authorities by staging some bear sculptures around town. The foofaraw has since died down, but today he tells BoingBoing’s David Pescovitz what he was up to. He doesn’t say too much more than what was in Greenpeace’s press release, but the post is worth a look for links to some of BB’s past coverage of the artist. About a year ago Jenkins told City Paper he was reconsidering his public sculptures; apparently he’s changed his mind.
