Last Day of Identity & Restraint: Art of the Dog Collar

Sunday, September 3

Enjoy the final day of our special exhibition, Identity & Restraint: Art of the Dog Collar. The Museum will be closed until Thursday, September 7th at 11am to prepare for the opening of our next special exhibition, Fashionable Dogs. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Invited guests and Members at the Individual level and above are welcome to attend the opening reception for Fashionable Dogs on September 6. Join as a Member today to attend!

Identity & Restraint: Art of the Dog Collar was organized in partnership between the National Sporting Library & Museum and the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog and was made possible through the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Timothy J. Greenan, Garth Greenan Gallery, and Mark Anstine and Marianna Lancaster.

Identity & Restraint: Art of the Dog Collar and Fashionable Dogs are made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
