Danville is Going to The Dogs
Here’s an interesting story – The town of Danville
is looking for 15 sponsors to take part in its inaugural “Dogs of Danville, Unleashed!” public art project in 2019.
According to a post on the town’s website: “The goal of this program is to create a temporary outdoor public art project displaying beautifully painted dog sculptures throughout Downtown Danville, accompanied by a walking tour and passport designed to attract and engage residents and visitors to downtown Danville between May and September 2019”.
These dog sculptures will be strategically placed throughout the downtown area, in front of sponsoring businesses as appropriate, and will be on display for four months. They will be auctioned off at the end of the period, and all proceeds will go toward developing another, similar art program for the town.
If you would like to sponsor one of these Dogs of Danville, the cost is $1,000, which covers the cost of materials and the artist’s compensation. For more information on the project or becoming a sponsor, contact Marija Nelson Bleier at (925) 314-3460.
