PREVIEW THE DOGTOWN HOUSES
Barkitecture is a partnership of Marion Cultural Alliance, Inc. and Humane Society of Marion County. MCA and the Humane Society have joined forces to bring awareness to the needs of homeless animals and to demonstrate the awesome power of the arts to change lives. Together we — you, the Humane Society and MCA — can help build a better community for people and pets.
Barkitecture, a 20-month project showcasing the works of local dogsigners, arfisans and catstruction teams in the creation of scaled animal shelters, is designed to demonstrate the incredible power of the arts to change life for the better for homeless animals.
The Barkitecture homes will be on display through January, when they be returned to the kennel to be readied for charity auction. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Humane Society of Marion County.
At MCA and HSMC, we do it for the arts, the animals, and for the community. We know our sponsors share our passions and we wish to extend a warm-nosed thank you to the great sponsors who are bringing us along. For information on how you can support art and animals through Barkitecture call (352) 369-1500.
