'Putting on the Dog' Photo Exhibit Observes Dog Days of Summer

Texas Tech’s International Cultural Center hosts its annual summer exhibit.


WHAT: “Putting on the Dog: Dogs without Borders” photo exhibit reception 

WHEN: 4:30-6:30 p.m. Friday (July 8)

WHERE: International Cultural Center, 601 Indiana Ave.

WHAT: Texas Tech University’s Office of International Affairs is hosting its annual summer photo exhibit for the seventh year, featuring photographs of dogs highlighting all of the species’ diversity. Photos in the exhibit have been submitted by Texas Tech faculty, staff and students as well as photographers locally, throughout the state and a few outside of Texas.

Each photograph in the exhibit is accompanied by a label that informs visitors about the breed and the dog’s country of origin.


During the reception on Friday, a screening of “My Dog: An Unconditional Love Story” will be available in the center’s auditorium. This 50-minute documentary explores the unique relationship between people and their beloved pets through candid interviews with notable dog lovers such as Edward Albee, Glenn Close, Billy Collins, Richard Gere, Isaac Mizrahi and more.

The exhibit will be on display through Aug. 20.
