In honor of its newest acquisition, "Dog Guarding a Basket of Grapes" (1836) by Austrian artist Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, the Kimbell Art Museum will present the “Kimbell Dog Day” celebration event. Coinciding with #NationalDogDay, this community event invites art lovers and their four-legged friends for dog-friendly activities on the Kimbell lawn.

Visitors can embark on a docent-led outdoor architecture tour of the Kimbell’s Louis I. Kahn Building and Renzo Piano Pavilion. The evening will conclude with a "Best in Show" parade featuring local celebrity judges Nancy Lamb, visual artist; Laura Lape, social media personality; and master of ceremonies Tony Green, host of Hello, I’m Tony Green, NBC Texas Today correspondent and host of the On the Same Page podcast. Award categories include the dog that looks most like the new acquisition, dog with the best costume, largest dog and smallest dog.

Visitors can enjoy refreshments and light bites for purchase from the Kimbell Café during Happy Hour; an outdoor bar will be available for dog owners. Local vendors include the Melt ice cream truck and Pelican SnoBalls, serving ice cream treats and shaved ice for both humans and canines. Sam the Artist will offer free custom pet portraits as supplies last. Visitors can also participate in art-making activities with Kimbell educators on the Kahn porticos.

An animal-themed scavenger hunt through the galleries will challenge visitors to find all the Kimbell dogs on view in works across the permanent collection. Those who complete the scavenger hunt will receive a special prize, as supplies last.

Only service animals are permitted in museum buildings. All dogs must remain on a leash at all times. Dog owners must pick up after their pets. A water and cooling station will be available outside for dogs and dog owners.
