Happiness is a Journey

Happiness is a Journey chronicles the daily life and art of Bear Lopez, an East Austin resident of 60 years.

Happiness is a Journey chronicles the daily life and art of Bear Lopez, an East Austin resident of 60 years. Artists Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan met Bear at the Austin American Statesman’s printing warehouse where Lopez has been working for over 20 years without a single day off, delivering papers. Throughout his life Bear has been collecting items he comes across—creating shrines at his E 2nd St. residence, in his vehicles, and his work station at the Statesman.
