Standing in the soft light of a setting sun we find the warm embrace of a couple in bronze. Everyone needs a hug, even if you're a sculpture. The sculpture below is entitled "The Hug" and was created by Jimilu Mason, who grew up in Washington D.C. It stands on a sidewalk in Columbia Maryland (outside of The Columbia Association) and is dedicated to the late Mort Hoppenfeld (Columbia's Chief designer). On a plaque nearby it is stated about Mort Hoppenfeld ..." whose plans and designs for Columbia embrace all people" , making "The Hug" a fitting symbol of his vision.
