Art Goes Alternative 2: Puppy Kisses and Colorful Art

As we strolled through The Rosewall, our eyes were captivated by imaginative artwork. Customized skate decks and creative canvases adorned the walls. Positioned in the middle of the room were 9 artfully crafted dog sculptures.

The Rosewall was filled with laughter, dog kisses, and creativity.  M Street Entertainment Group held their second installment of Art Goes Alternative this past Sunday at The Rosewall, featuring personalized skate decks and dog sculptures. Furry friends and their owners gathered together to benefit animal welfare. We're here to give you a recap of Sunday's dog-loving event.

Jenna Scott’s acoustic sounds echoed through the room as we meandered around The Rosewall. The scope of the musical talent was present throughout the day. Unique music ignited The Rosewall as each artist took the stage.

Out of the corner of our eye, we spotted someone drinking a bloody mary and immediately made a B-line toward the bar. We ordered the "make your own bloody mary" featuring Tito's Vodka, and added bacon to our drinks.

 The  Tito 's bloody mary bar was a huge hit!

Sipping our delicious drink, we slowly ventured over to a far wall that was decorated with skateboard decks. Here, we saw David Grizzle's amazing Willie Nelson piece and  Straw Castle’s intricate design.

 We feasted our eyes on the creative art.

After cuddling with the husky puppies up for adoption from the Nashville Humane Association, we went into the black light room. We put on some 3D glasses, and started observing all of the brightly colored artwork by Layla Ellis. Mesmerized by the shapes and colors, the 3D glasses made the artwork seem larger than life.

 The black light room was so much fun!

Perhaps one of the highlights of the day was the kissing booth. After the founder of Tiny But Mighty, Marcia Masulla gave an emotional speech about her cause, we couldn't help ourselves from going back to visit with the adorable furry friends at the kissing booth.

In the spirit of animal rights, guests were able purchase artwork throughout the day, with proceeds going toward the Tiny But Mighty Fund. One of the most exciting features of the art show was the silent auction of the 9 customized dog sculptures. One lucky winner took home Nathan Brown's colorfully geometric piece. All in all, Art Goes Alternative raised over $2,000 for animal causes!

 It was a close call for who would take home Nathan Brown's dog sculpture!
