Animal lovers, join us for a lighthearted look at the roles animals play in art. Sometimes our furry or feathered friends take center stage and other times they are on the sidelines in symbolic roles. In this tour we will not only enjoy some animal companionship but look at art spanning many cultures and eras as we discuss why the artists included our animal friends.

Hosted by The San Diego Museum of Art Docent Council.
