Texas Tech Observes the Dog Days of Summer

The International Cultural Center hosts its annual summer photo exhibit.

The International Cultural Center (ICC) at Texas Tech University will hold a public art reception for its summer photo exhibit “Putting on the Dog: the dog as subject in fine art photography.” This is the fifth year for the center to host an exhibit of photographs that show dogs in all their international diversity.

The public reception is Friday (July 25) from 5-6:30 p.m. at 601 Indiana Ave. Jane Bell, senior director of ICC Outreach and Operations, is helping coordinate the event.

“We have several annual exhibits at the ICC that visitors look forward to,” Bell said, “but ‘Putting on the Dog,’ our tribute to man’s best friend during the dog days of summer, is the exhibit that instantly puts a smile on everyone’s face the minute they walk through the door.”

Each photograph in this annual exhibit will be accompanied by an exhibit label that informs the viewer about the breed and the dog’s country of origin. During the reception “Nova: Dogs Decoded in the ICC Auditorium” will be screened at 5:30 p.m.

This exhibit will be displayed through Aug. 28. The ICC is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
