Big Names, Small Art - Crocker Art Museum Silent Auction Benefit - May 21

May 21, 2015

"Big Names, Small Art" is a silent auction benefit for the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California, that is held in the outdoor gardens on the museum grounds.  All work featured in this benefit are from invited artists, and each work measures no larger than 12" x 12" inches in size.  Submitted for this event was Saving Jonah, a rescue dog photographed at the SPCA of Wake County, North Carolina.  Jonah was available for adoption at the time this image was captured. The project is another effort to rally the arts to help solve the problem of 3.7+ million domestic pets being euthanized in U.S. animal shelters each year due to an unwanted status. The puzzle concept is used as a metaphor that reaches out to the viewer to help solve the puzzle of unwanted pets, and to become the missing piece in their lives through adoption. Saving Jonah was accepted, by jurors, into three salons at the 2015 Austrian Trierenberg Super Circuit, an annual photography competition held in Linz, Austria, that attracts hundreds of thousands of submissions from all across the globe. That competition is considered one of the largest photography salons in the World.  This benefit provided an opportunity for the public to acquire one of the five limited edition pieces of Saving Jonah from "The (Unwanted) Pooch Puzzle" project.
