Coastal Dawgs Unleashed

leave a comment »

While I have been staying in South Coastal Georgia for the Holidays, I have seen much fan fare for the University of Georgia.  Uga, the Georgia bulldog,  their mascot, can be seen everywhere.  The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia had and event named the “Coastal Dawgs Unleashed” Art Event.  This coin covered bulldog was created by Sandy Schoettle, a local artist on the island.  The piece is covered with mostly 2009 pennies.  I observed a few older, more toned dates around the face, jowls, and feet.   I would say giving it more of a life-like appearance.  It’s located by on the northeast side of the main roundabout here on Saint Simons Island.
