Dogs: Faithful and True Exhibition at Indianapolis Museum


An art exhibition which illustrates the outer beauty of our pals with paws as well as paints a mental portrait of their inner grace, Dogs: Faithful and True is currently drawing crowds of canine enthusiasts to the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis.

Featuring Fido-inspired artwork in every medium and a variety of styles to please every aesthetic palate, the exhibition includes a print by John James Audubon, a painting by wildlife artist Robert F. Kuhn, nostalgic black and white photos, and Native American artifacts which captures the connection to canines. The exhibition will also offer a variety of dog-themed activities for attendees, like interactive video experiences and the chance to strike a pose in a dogsled for a souvenir snapshot.
