Public Art

The Dogs of Danville, Unleashed!

On May 9th we launched the first Public Art Program here in downtown Danville: The Dogs of Danville, Unleashed! There are 15 completely unique dog sculptures which are hand painted by local artists.

These works of art will be on view throughout downtown until September 19th

  1. Pick up your “Passport” at one of the 15 participating locations and explore our beautiful downtown to discover all 15 dogs. 
  2. Make sure to pop-in to each hosting business to have your "passport" stamped. 
  3. Return your stamped "passport" booklet to the Village Theatre and Art Gallery, the Danville Community Center or the Danville Senior Center for a chance to win prizes!

Please join us at the Village Theatre and Art Gallery on Thursday, September 19 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. for the closing reception and one last chance to view all 15 dogs together.

The dog sculptures will be available for purchase at the closing reception at the Village Theatre Art Gallery on September 19th (silent auction). Proceeds will go toward funding another public art project like this for Danville in the future.

Dogs of Danville - Closing Reception & Silent Auction

The countdown starts now. 

Just a little over two weeks until The Dogs of Danville comes to an end. Check them out while you can, and be sure to come to our Closing Reception and Auction.

Each day until the Closing Reception and Auction we will be posting a Dog a Day video.
