America’s first art exhibition for dogs, dOGUMENTA opens at FIGat7th in DTLA over two weekends in September!

Not by or about dogs, dOGUMENTA is a curated art show FOR dogs. This FREE event takes place September 14-16 and 21-23 from 11 am to 6 pm daily.

Each Sunday will feature an onsite mobile dog adoption. Friday, September 21 will feature a Yappy Hour from 4 - 6 pm. No ticket is needed for entry to the Yappy Hour.

Featured artworks by eight LA-based artists address the canine sensibility through a variety of media—from sound and sculpture to kibble and squeaky toys.

“After sniffing around the LA art world we dug up a group of amazing artists offering fresh perspectives on the issues and interests of 4-legged patrons,” dOGUMENTA founding curator Jessica Dawson said of the show’s LA iteration. “We can’t wait to unleash a whole new litter of artworks that West Coast culture hounds can explore for themselves.”

Reserving a ticket is strongly encouraged and guarantees entry. Reserving a ticket constitutes your agreement to the waiver in the description. PLEASE SELECT A TICKET BY DATE AND WINDOW OF ARRIVAL. Walk-ins will be let into the exhibit on a first come, first served basis.

One dog per person and that dog must be on a leash. Humans welcome!
