AKC Museum Of The Dog Explores The Beauty & History of Dog Collars with New Exhibit

Selection from NSLM dog collar collection, donated by Dr. & Mrs. Timothy J. Greenan, 2014

The American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog is excited to announce its newest exhibit, “Identity & Restraint: Art of the Dog Collar”, open April 5th through September 4th, 2023. This innovative traveling exhibition was developed in partnership between the National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM) and The AKC Museum of the Dog.

“It is truly an honor to have the opportunity to display this beautiful and extensive collection of dog collars,” said Alan Fausel, AKC Museum of the Dog’s Adjunct Curator. “It is especially exceptional when displayed alongside one of the greatest collections of dog art.”

This unique show presents an array of dog collars from the NSLM’s collection. Perhaps the largest collection of its kind, 187 dog collars were generously donated in 2014 by Dr. and Mrs. Timothy J. Greenan, of which 63 will be on display. Fine art from the AKC Museum of the Dog and American Kennel Club Collections will help develop an understanding of the collar as both art and object and how its design changed in relation to different dog breeds and their uses.

The exhibition is curated by NSLM’s George L. Ohrstrom, Jr. Deputy Director & Head Curator Claudia Pfeiffer. A comprehensive essay on the history of the dog collar by Dr. Greenan, former NSLM Board Member, will be featured in the accompanying catalogue. This exhibition was made possible through the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Timothy J. Greenan, Garth Greenan Gallery, and Mark Anstine and Marianna Lancaster.

An opening reception for Identity & Restraint: Art of the Dog Collar will be held for members and invited guests on April 4th at 6:30pm, with a press preview offered on April 5th from 10am – 12pm.
