Be sure and look for these all over Athens. They are very interesting in how they are done. Loved the Georgia Power worker dog. To go along with the dogs many hydrants are painted as well. Liked the crayola one.

Unless you are a dyed-in-the-wool GA Dawgs fan, this is NOT a must-see. BUT it is so much fun!!! You just want to go get your picture taken here. Silly, goofy, fun art announcing to the world that this is dawg country!!!.

The Let the Dawgs Out art exhibit is an awesome display of the city of Athens spirit and love for our home town University of Georgia Bulldogs. Definitely something any traveling sports fan wants to visit while in the hippest, best college town in America.......More
