And the Winner is…. Winslow!

Update April 12, 2024:

Say hello “Winslow”! You voted and chose your favorite name for the Museum’s favorite dog. The name “Winslow” (in honor of American artist Winslow Homer) was a hot contender right from the start of voting, going all the way to the Top 2 in a match-up against “Beau” (in honor of the stylish bow the dog is wearing). Voting was nose-to-nose for the final round, and it was a claw-biter right until the end, but Winslow edged out Beau to win it all!

Want to “meet” Winslow in person? White Dog Standing on Victorian Sofa is currently on display in the Cantilever Gallery as part of 65 Artists, 65 Years: An Anniversary Exhibition through September 8, 2024.
