On May 9th we are launching the first Public Art Program here in downtown Danville: The Dogs of Danville, Unleashed! There are 15 completely unique dog sculptures which are hand painted by local artists.
These works of art will be up on view throughout downtown from May 9 - September 19th. There will be an opening reception for the dogs on May 9th during the annual event, Doggie Night of Danville, all 15 dog sculptures will be up on view on the patio of the Village Theatre from 5-8pm. Please stop by to see them and meet the artists and sponsors.
The dog sculptures will be available for purchase at the closing reception at the Village Theatre Art Gallery on September 19th (silent auction). Proceeds will go toward funding another public art project like this for Danville in the future.
To learn more about the Dogs of Danville and their artists during the walking tour, call the Doggy Hotline at 925-314-3470.
