From the Press Release
‘Cats-in-Residence’ all find Purr-manent Residences thanks to The Cat Show at White Columns!
The Cat Show celebrates cats of all shapes, sizes and subjectivities with cat-alytic work by over 50 artists. Organised by artist and writer Rhonda Lieberman, the centerpiece is ‘The Cats-in-Residence Program’ where adoptable purr-formers, a.k.a. cats, from Social Tees Animal Rescue, lounge on feline fine art and run amok in a pussy playground designed by architects Gia Wolff and Freecell and hopefully find forever homes.
Due to the overwhelming success of ‘The Cats-in-Residence Program’ adoptions will be extended to every Friday and Saturday for the duration of the show, excluding July 4 weekend.
Samantha Brody of Social Tees explained, ‘The cats were having the time of their lives—the artist- designed enclosure is like a jungle gym/spa for kitties. And the visitors (especially those who went inside the enclosure!) were just as overjoyed as the cats. It was awesome to see so many faces light up.’
