New Art on the ART Bus Exhibit Features a Colorful Pet Parade!

March 8, 2018

Parade of DogsA new Art on the ART Bus Exhibit is up and sure to make riders smile!

Artist Emily Campbell invites you to picture yourself marching in the pet parade of playfully costumed dogs depicted in her colorful artwork. These four-legged pooches will accompany you as you make your way through the bus, and the artist hopes that the spectacle of high-stepping hounds brings to mind the happiness that animals provide. The original artwork in this bus is inspired by events hosted by the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

Art on the ART Bus is a mobile gallery on one of Arlington County’s ART buses. The bus travels on various ART routes. Be sure to look up the next time you get on an ART bus and you may get a colorful surprise!

To enjoy more dogs on parade, join the fun at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington’s annual Walk for the Animals, enter your pups in the costume contest at the League's Pints 4 Paws fall festival, or bring your pooch trick-or-treating at the shelter on Halloween. These events are fun and raise awareness for the work that the AWLA does in our community.
