We, as Americans, are obsessed with our pets, spending nearly $70 billion on them in 2017. Some might even say we worship their cute, wittle countenances to a point where we’d consider them… art. The Carnegie’s latest evening event is all about our furry friends, including pet portrait commissions from a local artist (bring a photo), a puppy pit full of adoptable doggos and feline film screenings. The event is centered around the New Albany museum’s newest exhibition, “Biophilia Life; or, My Best Friend Has Four Legs and a Tail.” Some non-pet related activities, but fun ones nevertheless, include performances by Jacqui Blue and DJ Kym Williams and drinks.
