Fur Suits and Fiber Arts
DESCRIPTION
The Animal History Museum is the first museum dedicated to understanding and celebrating the human-animal bond, as well as the evolving relationships between human and other species around us. We are hosting the Fur Suits and Fiber Art event to promote David Grimm's critically acclaimed Citizen Canine: Our Evolving Relationship with Cats and Dogs. Hell be talking about his new book, and the growing efforts by some and mounting resistance by others to treat non-human animals as more than property.

And in case you missed our pop-up during DTLA ArtWalk, artists and animal rescuers Lynn Koniecki and Anne Schwarz will be recreating their fabulous fiber art using alpaca fleece. So come see, feel and hear the yarns were spinning.

Well also have drinks for the people and passed apps for the pooches, so bring all your family members and come check out Pussy & Poochs extraordinary new Beverly Hills location! 9388 S. Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90210
