A bad reputation has left thousands of pit bulls facing a death sentence in shelters across the nation. Art for Pitties is a NYC-based fundraising initiative that has partnered with pit bull lovers and artists alike to create an animal friendly art show and raise awareness of the pit bulls' plight! The art scene of the world's capital should prepare itself for more butt-sniffing than usual when Art for Pitties, an art show to benefit the Pit Bull Terrier, opens for a one night viewing at The Gallery Bar in downtown Manhattan, Saturday August 21 from 5:30 to 8:30pm. 40+ original works of art created by artists worldwide, inspired by their love for these courageous beasts, will be displayed and auctioned online with all proceeds to go to EVEN CHANCE, a San Diego-based non-profit pit bull rescue. Auction goes live the evening of August 15th through Ebay Charities.
