ArtBARK! :: An Art Contest and Raffle to Benefit The Pet Project of Minnesota!

ArtBARK! is an art contest, raffle, and event that celebrates the connections created between our dogs, our families, and our communities. ArtBARK! is presented by Bone Adventure and Stray Dog Arts as a fundraiser for The Pet Project.

Kids! We want to see your dog art!

Artwork must be submitted on the back of the ArtBARK! postcard and can be in any medium. If you need a postcard, they can be picked up at all three Bone Adventure locations.

Art will be judged in four age categories:
5 years and under,
6-9 years,
10-13 years,
and 14-18 years.

Art must be submitted by May 6th, 2010.

Winning submissions from each category will be framed and hung in the Dogs of Edina exhibition gallery during the ArtBARK! event.

Top winners in each category will receive:
A $25 gift certificate to Bone Adventure as well as a pack of 10 greeting cards custom designed by Stray Dog Arts--featuring the winner's artwork!

Runners-up in each category will receive:
A $10 gift certificate to Bone Adventure as well as art supplies from Stray Dog Arts.

All artwork submitted will be displayed at the ArtBARK! event so that artists can bring family and friends to see all the great dog art! WOOF! How awesome is that?!

Raffle tickets are available at all three Bone Adventure locations as well as at the ArtBARK! event. Buy a ticket for your chance to win a custom portrait by Jessie Marianiello of Stray Dog Arts (an $1800 value) and an extra special custom dog bed from Bone Adventure. Tickets are $10 each and all proceeds go to The Pet Project, a local organization that is working to keep pets and their families together during tough times by providing pet food and basic veterinary services for local pets. More information about the great work that The Pet Project is doing for pets in our communities is available at

Prizes totaling well over $2,000! And all of it's going to an incredible cause!

ArtBARK! will take place May 9th, Mother's Day, from 12-5pm in the Dogs of Edina gallery. The Dogs of Edina gallery exhibition is located on the west end of Galleria, between Big Bowl and Louis Vuitton.
