Guide Dogs Model Dog Art Installation

Three model dogs with a Guide Dog

Guide Dogs NSW/ACT is delighted to be a part of City of Sydney's Chinese New Year Festival 2018 as the official charity partner.

As part of the festivities, our iconic Guide Dogs coin collection dogs were transformed into works of art at our Guide Dogs Model Dog Art Installation.

This installation marks Guide Dogs NSW/ACT’s 60th anniversary and will feature sixty Guide Dogs coin collection dogs painted and styled by artists, designers, schools and supporters.

Visitors to the Model Dog Art Installation will be invited to vote for their favourite artwork by making a donation in person at the Model Dog Art Installation, or vote online. All donations will go towards supporting Guide Dogs NSW/ACT, and the artwork that receives the most number of votes will receive the People’s Choice Award.

Following the Chinese New Year Festival, a selection of the decorated dogs will be sold at a charity auction.
