1. See Gillie and Marc’s New Artwork

#GoodFortuneDog by Gillie and Marc Art is coming to Chinatown. The sculpture, which features Dogman holding a red apple, will be on view from February 15 to January 2019.

“In honour of Year of the Dog, we’ve created this brand new sculpture to help bring good fortune to all of Melbourne and New York this Chinese New Year!,” Gillie and Marc Art write on their Facebook page. “…The word for Apple in Chinese is ‘ping’ — which is also the word for peace! In the face of last year’s unstable global landscape, we created Dogman holding an apple to spread the message of diversity and acceptance for all beings, and inspire the pursuit of a better world.”
