Reception, silent auction, set for first public art show


 If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Dogs of Danville: Unleashed, time is running out. The Town of Danville’s first public art installation is coming to an end on September 19, 2019.

This summer, residents and visitors have enjoyed 15 uniquely painted dog sculptures placed all around the downtown area.  The public art exhibition will be up through Thursday, September 19. That same evening, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. a closing reception and auction will take place at the Village Theatre Art Gallery, 233 Front St. 

The 15 dog sculptures will be auctioned off, with proceeds of the sale going back to a public art fund, which will allow the Town to do other public art exhibitions in the future.
