Ninety Bears was born at the North Power Plant at the University of Alberta campus in 2008. "Like ninety bears" was a phrase used by one of our instructors to describe something as epic and cool as ninety bears. For some reason it really stuck with us and we even named our student art show in South Rutherford "Art like Ninety Bears".
There was ten of us, a mixture of fine arts and design students. Little did we know that many years down the road some of us would bring the Ninety Bears out of hibernation and add some new bears to the mix.
The Ninety Bears Collective is a collection of Edmonton based artists and designers adventuring through a forest of creative endeavors. You can see our instagram here.
At our last meeting, I took some portraits of us. Here is part one:
