Name That Breed! Test Your Animal Know-how.

Gallery-goers during Animal Magnetism are encouraged to test their knowledge of animal breeds depicted in the exhibition. Select works will be accompanied by a plaque bearing a QR code that uncovers the breed on display. Name That Breed is presented in partnership with the MSPCA-Angell Animal Medical Center, Boston.  MSPCA-Angell veterinarians have volunteered their time and expertise to identify the breeds on view.
