Autumn Artist Showcase

Wednesday, October 14 —
1:11pm —

Submissions are now open for the Museum of the Dog’s next virtual artist showcase!
This virtual exhibition will highlight autumnal-themed dog art on our social media 
channels, email, and website. All mediums are accepted! 
We encourage all artists to apply.

What kind of artwork are we looking for? Anything that makes you think “fall”!
A painting of a dog curled up by the fire, a photograph of your pooch 
jumping into a pile of leaves, a gloomy charcoal drawing of a dog on a foggy day,
a piece featuring warm autumnal colors... 
the possibilities are endless!

We are accepting submissions from October 15 - November 3
The virtual showcase will run from November 9 - November 25

We can’t wait to see your artwork!
If you have any questions about the showcase, email us at info@museumofthedog.org

Plan a visit for your dog at the AKC CANINE RETREAT!

Out of courtesy to our neighbors, only service dogs and invited demonstration dogs are allowed in the museum.
