Update: Due to the hot weather forecast for tomorrow, we are postponing Puppies and Portraiture until September 2nd. We are hoping for a cooler day to ensure the health and safety of our visitors from PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).
**Update: Due to the weather forecast on Saturday, this event will be postponed until September 2nd.** At Puppies and Portraiture, you can take a walk around our Jefferson Garden, learn about portraiture, and snap a picture of yourself with some adoptable dogs and cats from PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society). Ever wonder why dogs, cats, and other animals pop up in painted portraits? Join the APS Museum in exploring the connections between household pets and early American portraits. Like other early American portrait artist (among other things), Charles Willson Peale relied on common symbols to communicate personal characteristics. Learn what those symbols, like dogs and other pets, meant during this fun afternoon in the garden. Feel like learning even more? Cool off in the APS Museum and uncover details about Charles Willson Peale, his curious family, and their long-lasting legacy. This is a free event from 12pm – 4pm in the American Philosophical Society’s Jefferson Garden. Guests are welcome to stop for any amount time throughout the program. We ask that no other pets are brought to the program. This is an event to help promote adoptions through PAWS and to further their mission. Help us respect the fantastic job they do while learning a bit more about their lovable animals (and art history too). About PAWS PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the city’s largest rescue partner and operates two high-volume, low-cost clinics serving pet owners and rescue organizations that lack access to affordable basic veterinary care. Through its three no-kill shelters and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year. PAWS is working to make Philadelphia a no-kill city where every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. Rain information: In the event of inclement weather, the program will take place on Saturday, Sept. 2
