The exhibition brought together images depicting rodents throughout art and popular culture.

 

The exhibit was augmented with art education workshops as attendees participated in hands on art events, encouraging empathy for all animals through creative artistic opportunities. 

Artists to create a design honoring this amazing underdog of the animal world.

 

From Moscow to Cambridge, artists in support of rats and small animals have been heeding the call submitting their designs for the Rattie Uprising, creating positive and powerful images that show small animals as fascinating individuals .

Over a 1,000 people attended the opening night festivities
