DC Momma’s Law Sculpture and Wood Plaques
Charles Bergen created a layered wooden wall sculpture of Momma, the pit bull, for Patrick’s Petcare in Washington, DC. Made of Southern Yellow Pine plywood with American Walnut for the nose, the three-dimensional, larger than life, wall sculpture greets visitors as they come into the space to pick up or drop off their pooches.
Additionally, six Mamma's Law Award Plaques were created and given out to elected officials and DC Citizens who made the animal welfare law “Mommas Law” a reality. Using the initial drawing of Momma the pit bull by BreA James, these 6" x 8" x 3/4" birch plywood plaques were made by Charles Bergen Studios. Upon completion, Max Rosenstein burned the wooden plaques on birch panels and Senoda created the text labels for the plaques. The DC Residents, Lawmakers and entities recognized with this unique plaques include:
1. Mayor Muriel Bowser
2. Drew Schneider & Petworth News
3. Emily Price
4. Sarah Yacoub
5. Councilmember Brandon Todd
6. Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie
