The Cool Cats Project is a partnership between Cool Arts Society and the Okanagan Cat Coalition (OKCC). The project is aimed at increasing awareness about the estimated 18,000 feral cats living in the Central Okanagan. The OKCC assists by spaying and neutering cats, then re-homing or releasing them to live out their lives without perpetuating the overpopulation problem.
Cool Arts artists have created art, using cats as a theme, in various mediums (painting, clay sculpture) under the mentorship of local artists Lee Claremont, Sharilyn Kuehnel, Sarah Parsons, Potters Addict Ceramic Art Centre, and Rena Warren.

The project will culminate with the hosting of four public exhibitions of the artwork, (including the FINA gallery here at UBCO), each with an educational element focusing on increasing public awareness of feral cat issues in our community and how the OKCC is working to address these issues.
