As if pups arenâ€™t revered enough in Downtown, they are now getting their own art exhibit.
Billing itself as â€śAmericaâ€™s first art exhibition for dogs,â€ť dOGUMENTA, is plopping down at FIGat7th on Sept. 14-16 and again Sept. 21-23.
The traveling exhibit, which is being brought to Downtown by Arts Brookfield, is free and features a variety of dog-friendly artworks, from sound pieces to sculptures to squeaky toys.
It was inspired by art critic Jessica Dawson, who would take her dog Rocky on walks around New York City galleries; Dawson realized that Rocky saw art in a different way than humans do.
Trainers from the Los Angeles Positive Dog Trainer Alliance will be at dOGUMENTA to dispense tips and tricks for pet rearing. The exhibit is limited to one dog per person and canines must be on a leash.
Reservations are requested and available online at artsbrookfield.com; walk-ups will be available on a first-come, first-served basis if space is available.
