Here are the two original art works (below) that are the sources for the players in this art game of Dog Art Tic Tac Toe. Below left is "Balloon Dog (Blue)," 1994, by Jeff Koons. This large-scale sculpture is mirror-polished stainless steel with a transparent color coating. Below right is "A Friend In Need," 1903, by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge. It depicts seven dogs sitting around a table playing poker late at night. The title comes from the fact that the bulldog is handing an ace under the table to his friend. With that additional ace, the dog with his back to the viewer will have four aces and will have a hand of "Four of a Kind."
