An art exhibition for dogs?

23 August 2016 - 2 min read

There was an exciting event in the canine calendar on 20th-21st August 2016. The first ever contemporary art exhibition for dogs. You don't have to be an art aficionado to find the title intriguing. I couldn't resist a trip to find out more.

The South London exhibition was designed by British artist and inventor Dominic Wilcox, featuring a variety of interactive installations and paintings created specifically for our four-legged friends.

From a dog bowl-shaped ball pool to an open car window simulator, Wilcox aimed to encourage us to spend more time playing with our pets and to have lots of fun while doing it!

Here are a few of our highlights:

Dog ball pool

Luna couldn't decide which ball in the supersized dog bowl was most appealing.

Dog art

One ambitious pup had tried to scale the column for the ultimate feed. Bad news, their paw prints gave them away.

Dog ball pool

Little Stan, somewhat dwarfed by the dog bowl, didn't fancy a dip.

Dog car art

Dogs on a day trip from All Dog Matters, a charity helping to rescue and rehome dogs in and around London, sat obediently for their photo. If you're an owner of a rescue dog you can find out more about our rescue dog insurance here.

Scooby and Lady were eager to check out the contemporary paintings. Erol hung back unconvinced. Clearly a champion of more traditional pieces.
