Stray Rescue's Urban Wanderers Art Exhibition, in partnership with Saint Louis University's Museum of Art, is one of the most creative, unique, and exciting fundraising events of the year. The exhibition consists of over 50 area artists, who have chosen a Stray Rescue dog as inspiration for a work of art. Stray Rescue dogs also put their mark on the art world by creating paintings with their paws, tails, and noses! The exhibition is quickly becoming somewhat of an icon in both the animal welfare and fine art scenes.
The theme of this year's exhibit will be "Plight of the Street Dogs". There are endless cases of dire hardships and uplifting recoveries. Telling these stories through art has proven to be a compelling, effective way to educate on the reality of what homeless companion animals face on a daily basis, as well as the truth about shelter animals making the greatest companions.
This year, the exhibition will open on Friday, March 22nd with a reception beginning at 6pm and will run through Sunday, May 5th with the Tail End & Dr. Fox presentation. The opening includes food, beverages and of course, truly inspiring and professional works of art. All donated artwork will be sold via an online auction managed by Stray Rescue, and 100% of the funds raised will go directly to helping homeless dogs and cats.
