Who needs human friends? Certainly not you. Take your daily walk to the next level by treating your dog to a visit to the Polygon Gallery, where the Dog Days exhibit will be showcasing man’s best friend all summer long. The exhibit is dog-friendly, so you can both drool over contemporary works, classic images, and vintage photographs. You might even notice some parallels between the art and the 6000 puppy pictures on your camera roll.
