TEXAS Austin pets reflect human expression in art

September 16, 2014

Pets reflect human expression in art Pets are featured in the exhibit “In the Company of Cats and Dogs” at the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, Texas. The animals often convey a message such as indicating wealth or status or infuse a playful or sinister meaning to a scene. “It’s not just to make the composition look nicer or to add a little ambiance or to create a setting, like a prop,” said curator Francesca Consagra. “[Animals] actually have deep connections to status, class, personality, aspirations and big philosophies.” CBS News (9/14)
