Buddy Bear Charlotte

78.7”h, Acrylic paint on prefabricated sculpture

Main Public Library, Charlotte, NC

Commissioned by: Alemannia Society, German Saturday School, German American Chamber of Commerce, Language & Culture Foundation, Regina and Kurt Waldthausen.

I painted this sculpture in the United Buddy Bear Studios in Berlin, Germany. The imagery reflects Queen Charlotte, her love for botany, and the rich cultural and business connections between Germany and Charlotte, NC.
