The Asian Art Museum has debuted its latest outdoor sculpture on its Larkin street steps: Yoshitomo Nara’s Your Dog. The large, white puppy — installed during the Year of the Dog — greets museum goers, Civic Center visitors, and those who live and work in the neighborhood with its whimsical and cartoon-like qualities. Installed at the top of the Larkin Street stairs, the museum encourages visitors to take a picture of Your Dog with your dog and use the hashtag #Naradog.
To fully welcome the new canine friend to Civic Center, in January and February, we’ll share a series of photos of Civic Center pups with the hashtag #pupsofciviccenter, which will feature dogs that have visited Civic Center public spaces during 2018 (Year of the Dog) and early 2019. Make sure to use the hashtag or tag us in images of your pup in Civic Center to be featured on our social media accounts and website!
Update 2/5: Happy Lunar New Year! We loved seeing the #pupsofciviccenter photos so much that we want you to keep tagging us — we’ll continue to share the photos from time to time.
