Justice Bell Replica
Our Justice Bell replica was made at the historic Traction Company in Philadelphia by sculptors Erin Addie and Gary Pergolini, alumni of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA). Rob Roesch, world-renowned sculptor and Chair of the Sculpture Department at PAFA, oversaw the project. Although lightweight and made of a resin material, it looks like the real bell and is the same size.
March/April 2020 Berks History Center in Reading, Pennsylvania.
Erin Addie and Gary Pergolini are Philadelphia based multidisciplinary artists, working both individually and collaboratively. Their sculptures and projects utilize a broad range of skills including mold making and casting, foundry, welding, woodworking. Both are graduates of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, and work out of Traction Company, an artist collective in west Philadelphia.
