Would you like more rescue cats with your Art?

Part purr-formance piece, part social sculpture, part design solution, The Cats-in-Residence Program integrates art and rescue to address animal overpopulation in urban areas.


The Cats-in-Residence Program debuted as part of The Cat Show at White Columns from June 14 through July 27, 2013.

This purr-formance piece, conceived by writer/artist/curator Rhonda Lieberman, was produced in collaboration with architects Gia Wolff and Freecell (John Hartmann and Lauren Crahan), artists Lucky deBellevue, Jonathan Horowitz, Ryan McNamara, Rob Pruitt, Sam Roeck, Ruth Root, Theo Rosenblum + Chelsea Seltzer, Joe Scanlon and purr-formers (a.k.a. adoptable rescue cats) from Social Tees Animal Rescue NYC.

The purr-formance piece went on to take up residence in Real Art Ways, Worcester Art Center and 356 S. Mission Rd, partnering with local rescues at each venue. See individual exhibition pages for more information.

A total 75 cats were adopted.
