Urban Wanderers

July 16 ― August 29

The Saint Louis University Museum of Art

In partnership with Stray Rescue of St. Louis, the Saint Louis University Museum of Art will host Urban Wanderers (formerly “Arf Nouveau”) with Loretta Swit from M*A*S*H. The exhibition will open with a 5:30 p.m. reception on Friday, July 16 and continue until August 29.

A rescued stray from Stray Rescue of St. Louis will serve as the inspiration for over 40 area artists as they have painted, photographed, illustrated and sculpted their interpretation of an abandoned or abused dog or cat that has been given a second chance due to the rescue efforts of the Stray Rescue staff. The dogs and cats of Stray Rescue will use their paws, tails, and/or noses to create “personalized” works of art that will also be displayed and available for online silent auction.

The art displayed in the exhibition is available for silent auction by visiting http://www.blacktie-stlouis.com/auctions. Online bidding will begin on Friday, July 16. All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
