Out of the Blue

Joan Marie Kowal's avatar Joan Marie Kowal

Over thirty individually decorated crosses are displayed with blue and white flowers in the nation's first physical memorial for victims of canine-related fatalities. The title reflects the fact that canine- related fatalities happen "Out of the Blue", in many instances. The crosses will be covered in multiple shades of luminous blue colors. This is an opportunity to Pay it Forward, and show the good side of humanity. Visitors are encouraged to express their sympathy, respect, and support for the victims and their families by leaving teddy bears, flowers, or memorial decorations in the designated heart-shaped memorial space. There will also be information on prevention of bites, and responsible dog ownership. Outdoor art. Traveling exhibit.
