Kelsey Montague, the artist behind those Instagram-famous winged #whatliftsyou murals around the world, just completed two murals at dog park Fetch Park and Ice House on the corner of Daniel Street and Dekalb Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward. These are her first murals in Atlanta.
The public unveiling was set for Thursday, February 28, but the day’s rain put a damper on the plans. Instead, Fetch and Montague will debut the murals Friday, March 1 at 9 a.m.
Montague deems her murals “incomplete” works of art until a person (or dog) steps between the two wings to complete the piece.
Fetch opened last June as a full service dog park-bar. Dog owners obtain monthly memberships or day passes to enter the park. Memberships are $30 per month or $10 for a day pass. Fetch includes a turf field, dog toys, cooling stations, an Airstream bar, several TVs, and monthly events such as comedy nights and theme parties. Fetch offers a full coffee bar, beer, wine, and liquor.
The Atlanta-based dog park announced earlier this month it is expanding to Nashville. Fetch-Nashville hopes to open by the end of the year.
Open Monday - Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to 12 a.m.; Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., weather permitting.
Update, February 28, 10:45 a.m.: This story was updated to reflect the park is open Thursday (pending any lightning in the area) and the murals’ unveiling Friday morning with Montague in attendance.
