Reviewed 22 September 2012

Derivative art pieces -- cows did it best in Chicago and now everyone's a copy artist. this exhibit long ago outlived its charm.

“Another example of Athens becoming an Art destination”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Public art in athens is continues to expand. Kids love the scavenger hunt to try to find all the Dawgs and the different artistic expressions representing a theme, The public bus shelters are other great examples - some of those examples incude a music note and yellow school bus shelters.

“Flowers on a bulldog????????”
Reviewed 24 December 2011

Some are just plainly unattractive. This is not art that I find appealing. Just another opportunity to get more public funding for the art community, which it did.

“The dogs have run away...mostly”
Reviewed 13 June 2011

I have lived in Athens for several years and always enjoyed driving/walking past these dog statues, but they have (mostly) been removed. They were auctioned off for charity so the loss was a gain for some, I am just glad we were not told they went to a "farm" to live out their last years.
