What is Art Paws?
Art Paws celebrates pet independence at Artown
As the nation celebrates its independence in the month of July, Art Paws asks not what animals can do for their country, but what their community can do for them.
More than 100 local vendors have come together to celebrate canine independence days at Art Paws. Let them experience the wind behind their fur. Savor the joy of gourmet everything in the company of friends. Imprint their immortal soul on canvas. Gaze into a crystal ball with the aid of a psychic. Think, therefore be. Dog. And proud of it.
Art Paws is the only pet-specific event at the Artown festival. The event features products and services designed to uplift your pet's mind, body, and soul – and help animals in need. Voting at Art Paws will determine which three local animal-aid agencies will garner all the proceeds from the event. Last year, the US Wolf Refuge, Feline Rescue of Northern Nevada, and Boxers & Buddies received more than $7,000. Proceeds from the event will benefit local non-profit pet organizations. A special feature this year will be a free Tribute to Animals by the Nevada Opera, as well as wine and beer tastings and an evening concert by Rhythm Tailors Hillbilly Band.
Art Paws during the month of July is part of the 18th annual Artown festival, July 2013. The month-long summer arts festival features more than 400 events produced by more than 100 cultural organizations and businesses in locations citywide. Artown receives major funding from the City of Reno, and is sponsored by Grand Sierra Resort, U.S. Bank, NV Energy, JLH Inc., Waste Management, Basin Street Properties, Reno Gazette-Journal, KOLO 8 News Now, KTHX-FM and KNPB with additional support from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
