This public art project will celebrate the 90th year of the APA of Missouri bringing people and animals together and also raise awareness about animal adoption options and animal welfare.
Measuring 4-feet tall, 10 dogs (Hanley) and 10 cats (Harry) are being designed by artists.
At some points in the process, as I adhered more pieces, I could swear that even more surface seemed exposed than when I began! But it was when the task seemed overwhelming that I thought of Daphne and Bruno – my own rescue dogs – and the immeasurable amount of unconditional love they’ve given to me. Daphne was a 4-year-old stray; no one knew her history. The vets even estimated her age by her teeth. And for little Bruno, I am his 4th home; he was relinquished by 2 previous families, then stayed with a foster-mom until he found his way to me and his forever-home. This sculpture is a tribute to them and the special relationship between all people and animals.
I’m so honored to be a part of this awesome project!
All the works will be on public display soon in the St. Louis area to promote animal welfare and raise funds for the APA!
I’ll keep you posted!
