The Saint Louis University Museum of Art (SLUMA) exhibition this year shed lights on man’s best friend – those furry animals we all love who have survived some truly horrendous situations. SLUMA teamed up with Stray Rescue of St. Louis to bring the exhibition Urban Wanderers to campus.
It features works by local and national artists and focuses on innocent dogs and cats that have suffered shocking abuse, neglect, and abandonment.
The free exhibition, running through Sept. 16th, includes paintings, photographs, and sculptures of the Stray Rescue dog’s that have been abandoned, abused, or neglected. Some of the dogs even contributed to the art show and made some “arf” themselves with their paws, tails, and noses! Aw!
SLUMA is located at 3663 Lindell Blvd., O’Donnell Hall, St. Louis, MO 63108
Urban Wanderers has several events coming up!
9/5 – Bark-B-Que – From 11-1, come enjoy lunch on the patio of SLUMA and help out Stray Rescue of St. Louis! For the measly price of $3, you’ll get a hot dog, bag of chips, and bottled water. Sarah’s Cake Shop food truck will be on-site selling some yummy cupcakes as well!
UPDATE 9/16 – Kids’ Day - Kids’ Day will now be integrated with the Closing Reception on Sunday, September 16th. The event for kids will be from 11am to 2pm on the 16th, and all scheduled activities remain exactly the same.
