Patches, from Litter #1 of Paws on Parade, was painted by local artist Petra Pechova in 2018.  She sits atop a Bob Doster pedestal just outside of the playground at Stevens Park and is a reminder to all of how important to the heart and soul the arts are, and just how vibrant the arts can make us all.

Speaking on Patches, Petra said:

"When I think of South Carolina, I automatically think of sunshine first, and I think that very same sunshine is the reason why my color perception changed after moving here.  I never used to like bright colors which obviously changed.  When I saw the picture of the statue, I already knew what he should look like.  I love that Lancaster chose dogs for this project, because dogs are close to my heart too, we have a lab mix which we rescued ten years ago, which is where the heart on the dog came from.  And that's how Patches got her name, too!"
