Urban Wanderers

When: Fri., June 10, 5-8 p.m. and Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Continues through July 24 2016

Stray Rescue regularly finds dogs in terrible conditions and worse shape and then works hard to heal them so they can be happily adopted. More than 80 artists were invited to create art inspired by Stray Rescue's success stories for the exhibition Urban Wanderers. Photographs, paintings and sculptures of the dogs who made it will fill the Saint Louis University Museum of Art (3663 Lindell Boulevard; tonight from 5 to 8 p.m. for the opening reception. And along with the artworks will be some of the dogs, some of which also made their own portraits (with paint and paws). All of the work will be auctioned off online to raise money for Stray Rescue's ongoing mission of mercy. The show remains up through July 24.
