Bend Oregon’s iconic and most photographed sculpture is named “Art,” the nickname given the man seated on a bench staring into his empty wallet.The life-size cast-aluminum sculpture was created by Seattle artist Richard Beyer and placed at the corner of Wall Street and Franklin in 1982 when Bend economy was hit strongly by a recession. Though currently thriving, the town was hit hard by the great recession which began in 2008 and then the effects of the pandemic in 2020. This sculpture shows how art can be relevant over time.
