Downtown Chicago To Be Overrun With Dog Statues This Summer
It's been eighteen (18!!) years since the city of Chicago rolled the dice and installed cow statues all over the city. That was a success so they're trying it again, but with dogs.
More than 200 dog statues will be on display in downtown Chicago starting this summer. The majority will be along Michigan Avenue and will be part of a collaboration between the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation and PAWS Chicago.
The project is being called K-9s for Cops, it aims to honor officers who were killed or hurt in the line of duty.
Downtown businesses are being encouraged to commission an artist and their "dog" can take up residence right outside their building.
I don't know much but I do know that dogs are way more popular than cows, so judging by the success of 1999's "Cows on Parade" this exhibit should be a big hit in the city this summer.
