Strathmore Unleashed! art exhibit opening Thursday, May 3

Strathmore in Bethesda has a special art exhibition, Strathmore Unleashed!, that is a canine-tastic art exhibition that’s gone to the dogs! It focuses on dogs — and all the memories and emotions they evoke—depicted in sculpture, painting, mixed media, design, photography and video.

There is a special opening reception with a yappy hour this Thursday, May 3 for free, reservations are not required. Guests are invited to bring their well-behaved dogs to yappy hour in the Mansion from 6:00-7:00 p.m., and the opening reception runs from 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Yappy hour rules are:

  • Dogs must always be on a leash
  • Only well socialized animals are welcome
  • No animals on the furniture
  • While on campus, please pick up after your dog
  • Dogs may not be tied up or left unattended at any time

 If you can’t make the yappy hour or opening reception, the Strathmore Unleashed! exhibit runs from April 28 to June 23, 2012. Admission is free, and exhibition hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday – 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Wednesday – 10:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., Saturday – 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., closed Sunday.

There are also a number of education programs being offered throughout the exhibit’s run, most are on Saturdays and are kid-friendly, such as Rover’s Rad Retreat, Drawn to Dogs, and more. Programs are free, but some require registration. Go to Strathmore’s website to learn more.
