May 2009 – HAVERHILL, MA – Award-winning metal sculptor Dale Rogers is launching a traveling exhibit of 20 of his unique 8-foot-high by 10-foot-long dog sculptures. The free exhibition, entitled The Big Dog Show, will be on display throughout New England for a six week period during August and September 2009.

“Art enthusiasts, dog lovers, families, residents and visitors will encounter a unique gathering of compelling ‘American Dog’ sculptures (see below) that are larger-than-life, accessible, and attractive to people of all ages. Bringing art to the masses is valuable to everyone-not only people who support the arts but those who enjoy it,” said Rogers.

This solo exhibition represents more than two years of planning and creation.  Rogers is solely funding the traveling exhibition with an investment of more than $200,000.

“Dale sees this tour as an excellent opportunity to attract national attention to his work as a socially responsible artist with the intention of partnering with a corporate sponsor that shares these values and who can help him take this exhibit to Boston and cities across the nation,” said Kelly Martin, spokesperson for Rogers. “Dale hopes this event is appreciated by all and will consider it a success if people get involved,” added Martin.
