Painted Guide Dogs

Aussie icon Guide Dogs money boxes have been painted and are up for auction

There is a rare chance to get your hands on the strange little painted Guide Dogs that used sit outside our supermarkets, next to the hard-as-a-rock, break-your-jaw gumball machines and the 20 cent, 10 second, ride-on, colourful rockers.
The statuesque old money boxes have been given a lick of paint by artists, cricketers, AFL footy players and everyone’s favourite entertainersthe Wiggles, in an attempt to raise money, whilst giving people an opportunity to collect a bit of priceless pop-culture art.
There are 17 works in all, done by artists Amanda Hart, Bronwyn Bancroft, Colin Hyett, Denise Keele-Bedford, Fleur MacDonald, Jo Bertini, John Bokor, John Ryrie, Ju Yuen, Merran Chew, Marise Maas, Stuart French, and William Green (WEG) .
The solid hollow-set dogs will be on display at QV Melbourne from 10-22 April as part of 2007 Guide Dog week, International Guide Dog day being April 18.
2007 is Guide Dog Victorias 50th anniversary, and in that time they have assisted thousands of blind and vision impaired people to achieve safe and independent lives outside of their homes.
The actual auction of these one of a kind, original painted Guide Dog statues, for Guide DogsVictoria will run 15-22 April on Ebay.
