This art exhibit has become an Athens tradition. Even as a local, it is fun to try to hunt them all down and take a picture with them. I'd like to make this into an actual "scavenger hunt" someday.

I want instinctively dislike the bulldogs because they represent football, which means so much to a lot of people, but just means terrible traffic and a town full of drunk buttholes to those of us who love the downtown area. However, it kinda gets art into the eyes of people who might otherwise never notice, if only because the art... More

We did this as a scavenger hunt with our extended family and it was so much fun to try to find all of them around town. WE made a scrapbook of all the Dawgs so far with the family in it. Pretty funny.

I love art and especially this exhibit! I feel so at home whenever I see another dawg. It's always a nice surprise to see one I've never seen before.

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

This project of the Athens Garden Club has endured for almost a decade. They are now part of the unique landscape of Athens.

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.

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.

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.
