Museum of the DOG Returns

The American Kennel Club will bring its DOG Museum in the Kalikow Building at 101 Park Avenue in New York City on Friday, February 8, just prior to the start of  the annual Westminster Dog show.

It returns after being relocated to Missouri, 32 years ago. 

According to the AKC, it brings hundreds of paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, bronzes, porcelain figurines, decorative art objects and interactive displays, representing and honoring canines throughout the years.

A mission statement for the Museum states: “The exhibition, collection, interpretation, and preservation of the art, artifacts, and literature of the dog for purposes of aesthetic enjoyment and to enhance the human/canine relationship.”
