Dog Days of Summer

Saturday, August 24 — Sunday, August 25
10am — 5pm

Dog Days of Summer is a local artist showcase culminating summer festivities at the Museum of the Dog. In celebration of our Women and Dogs in Art in the Early 20th Century exhibition, we are inviting local female canine artists to exhibit their works at tables, give live demonstrations of their craft, and engage our visitors during the weekend of August 24th and 25th. What better way to see how far female artists have come than to tour MOD’s 20th century artists then embrace the talent of women in our own community.

Congratulations to the selected female artists and thank you to all of our applicants! We look forward to seeing you there!
