Sit. Stay. Art! partners local artists with shelter pets to raise awareness, adoptions and funding for local humane organizations. Artists are called to select a pet awaiting adoption as the inspiration for their work. The artwork is then displayed and sold at the event along with a placard featuring the pet’s photo and characteristics or background. Some of the shelter dogs portrayed in the art are brought to the event to be “on display” as well.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, June 1, in downtown Oklahoma City at the
Individual Artists of Oklahoma art gallery. Sit. Stay. Art! 2013 will provide 100% of its proceeds to benefit Pets and People Humane Society.
