A new art exhibit in Phoenixville, PA is working to show viewers the contrast between the idealized commercial view of animals versus their actual commercial treatment. The mixed-media show, titled Myths & Logos, was produced by Public Eye: Artists for Animals, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit arts group that advocates for animal welfare. For example, a piece by Aaron Albonetti depicts happy, iconic images from the beef industry behind a bloody slab of meat. Another work shows wild mustangs seemingly galloping freely, but in actuality are running away from a helicopter trying to round them up. The show runs through October 31 at the Artisans Gallery & Café.
