Large dogs have begun to take up a temporary home in the Navy Yard this week, all in preparation for a large art show featuring large dogs.

The Navy Yard Garden Association announced a Summer Solstice Celebration and Grand Opening of its unique dog-themed sculptural exhibit in the Navy Yard’s Shipyard Park on Thursday, June 21, from 7 p.m. to sunset.

The public is invited to attend this free, family friendly event.

The traditional start of summer will welcome Massachusetts sculptor Dale Rogers and his whimsical art exhibit, The Big Dog Show, consisting of 20, eight foot high steel sculptures on display from June 21 to Sept. 10. The big dog sculptures will be installed throughout the Navy Yard in Shipyard Park, Boston National Historical Park, and along the Harbor Walk.

Award-winning metal sculptor Dale Rogers said, “Adding art to public landscapes can inspire people of all ages…invoke a thought, generate a conversation, and create a strong connection for people who view it. Historically, dogs have made positive and lasting impressions with people and I want The Big Dog Show to do the same.”

Please join the community for the grand opening of this special outdoor art exhibit. Enjoy delicious food truck offerings, hear music by Nevena Djordjevic, and attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony with distinguished guests.

Come for the fun and stay for the sunset with spectacular views of Boston Harbor. Walk, run, bike or boat to the Charlestown Navy Yard for a sculpture stroll along a delightful two-mile route with family, friends and a favorite dog.

The Navy Yard Garden Association is hosting the exhibit in partnership with the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA), Boston National Historical Park, and the National Park Service. Sponsors include Bark Around Boston, Boston Dermatology and Laser Center, Boston Harbor Cruises, Charlestown Marina, Crate Escape, Cut-Splice, D.C. Beane and Associates, Diversified Automotive, Garrick-Santo Landscape Co., Harborview at the Navy Yard, Legal Sea Foods, MGH Institute for Health Professions, Pier 6 Restaurant, 7-Eleven, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, Spinelli-Hickey LP, The Stevens Group, and the USS Constitution Museum on the city’s historic Freedom Trail.
