A whimsical take on the ever-present New York Poop pickup predicament. Made of porcelain, metal, and acrylic, this mixed media installation reminds dog owners to clean up after their four-legged friends. This work is inspired by artist Yvonne Shortt and her adventures in Forest Park’s dog run with her Airedale terrier Peppermint.

This exhibition is presented by RPGA Studio, Inc.
