What is the Bow WOW Art Dogs Event?

Bow WOW Art Dogs is a community-wide event, benefiting ROAR Animal Rescue, The Ridgefield Guild of Artists and The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, where local businesses and citizens can sponsor fiberglass resin dog statues to be decorated and displayed all over Ridgefield, CT. Local artists are welcomed to submit design proposals and, pending selection, will be commissioned to bring their Art Dog design to life. Bow WOW Art Dogs event will support local artists, promote local businesses, and further Ridgefield’s community.

Beginning spring 2021, the completed Art Dog statues will be displayed around downtown Ridgefield, CT.

A “parade”, coordinated by ArtFul and ROAR, will include a map designating the locations of all completed statues and community events including dog portraits, dog grooming, and “Find The Chihuahua Scavenger Hunt”.

September 2021 (Date TBD), an auction of the completed Art Dog statues will be held at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum wherein all net proceeds will benefit ROAR Animal Rescue, The Ridgefield Guild of Artists, and The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, collectively. The event will incorporate both a silent and live auction for the “Art Dogs”.
