About the event
Over winter break, third-year Washington State University veterinary student Winnie Mefford finished a digital art portrait for a friend who lost her beloved dog, Lucy, a pit bull mix with a goofy and sweet personality. Her hope for her friend—and for Mefford’s fellow classmates who have similar portraits—is that the art offers another perspective of their pets and a chance to remember them.
“I really like to see people happy and to capture the precious moments in their lives,” she said.
Mefford’s pet portraits will be on display through mid-May at the Animal Health Library, part of the WSU Libraries’ “Art in the Library” program. The twice‑yearly exhibit features animal-themed works, typically from artists with a connection to the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine.
