To celebrate & raise awareness of the extraordinary impact Guide Dogs make in our community, we are excited to create an art exhibition, featuring Guide Dogs WA’s iconic coin collection dogs.
The Pup Art Exhibition will display 25 life-sized collection dogs, which have been hand-painted and decorated by local artists and supporters.
When Is The Pup Art Exhibition?
The exhibition will preview on Saturday 25 August at the Perth Art Upmarket, timed to coincide with National Dog Day on 26 August. The unique works of art in the exhibition will be showcased from Monday 10 – Friday 21 September (Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm) at Central Park in the Perth CBD.
What Happens To The Dogs After The Pup Art Exhibition?
In addition to raising community awareness, the art exhibition will double as a major fundraising campaign. Following the exhibition, the decorated collection dogs will be sold via an online auction throughout September and October 2018.
Visitors to the public art exhibition will be invited to vote for their favourite dog by donating money into their chosen artwork – the dog that collects the most money wins the “People’s Choice Award”!
National Dog Day is held on 26 August each year and celebrates the impact dogs have on our lives each and every day. National Dog Day acknowledges family dogs and raises awareness about the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year. Plus the Day highlights the selfless work of dogs who help save or transform lives, keep us safe and bring us comfort.Back to Top
