Arty’s Best Friends: Westminster Dog Show Pets

July 05, 2023 - September 03, 2023

On view on our second-floor mezzanine, these two murals feature the pet dogs of AKC MoD Members and friends who visited the Museum’s booth at the Westminster Dog Show (May 8-9, 2023). Featuring dog portrait illustrations by the talented artists Lisa Rothstein and Zac Crawford these two murals depict the many different breeds and all-American dogs owned by our friends.

Included with General Admission and FREE for Members.
