DENVER (CBS4)– The big blue bear is getting a bath and getting rid of the bright green paint that defaced the sculpture earlier this week.

The bear titled “I See What You Mean?” looks into the Colorado Convention Center windows in downtown Denver.

It was covered with bright green paint over the weekend. Police believe the culprits pelted the bear with balloons filled with green paint.

The suspects remain at large.

On Wednesday a crane lifted workers high above the sculpture for a power wash that forced the green paint off the back of the bear.

The bear will also need some hand scrubbing and repainting to remove all traces of the green paint.
