Art Show to Benefit BARCS

Sowebo Arts, in partnership with Zella’s Pizzeria at 1145 Hollins Street 21223 will present an exhibition of art to benefit BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter), opening August 6 through October 5. We are presenting animal themed work from artists in the Baltimore-
Washington area. These will be sold and the commission will be evenly shared between BARCS and SoWeBo Arts, Inc. The August 6 opening will be from 6 – 8 PM. Admission is free.

BARCS is the non-profit animal rescue organization that operates the former Baltimore City Municipal Animal Shelter. BARCS in conjunction with Baltimore City Animal Control take into the shelter 12,000 animals a year. BARCS houses over 450 animals on any given day and sends thousands of animals out to rescues and adopters every year. During these trying economic times BARCS is averaging 40 animals or more a day entering the shelter. These times of reduced grants and contributions, BARCS is in great need of funding. Your support is greatly appreciated. SoWeBo Arts supports causes like BARCS and community building through the arts.
