Well, a new art exhibit is borrowing the idea on a larger scale — or smaller depending on how you look at it.

PAWS for a PURRpose features more than 40 mostly life-sized dog and cat sculptures decorated by Texas artists. They’re on display through Aug. 31 at South Texas College of Law downtown, and they’ll be auctioned off at an event Nov. 7, with proceeds benefitting the Texas Humane Legislation Network and South Texas College of Law Animal Clinic. Michael Hagerty took a tour of the exhibit.
