Opening October 4, 2019 at White Park

The Art Alliance of the Riverside Art Museum, who previously brought you Art Float—Riverside (inspired by Portraits of Hope), is proud to present Art Bark in the Park, an homage to man (and woman’s) best friend—the dog!

You won't want to miss seeing the park filled with 150 Art Pups! The two-dimensional metal Art Pups are approximately three feet by four feet and a silhouette of one of the following breeds: Labrador, Scotty, Beagle, Basset Hound, and Husky. AND THEY'LL BE TURNED INTO WORKS OF ART by local artists!

The Art Pups will be unveiled at an Opening Night Gala, on Friday, October 4, 2019. An art event like no other!

All funds raised through Art Bark in the Park will help the Riverside Art Museum as we weave art into our community and instill a love of art throughout our city! #ArtBark
