Temple University student’s PETA ad lands at Kentucky Derby
A Temple University student’s winning design for an animal rights advertisement was featured at this weekend’s Kentucky Derby.
Dana Mulranen, a student at the university’s Tyler School of Art, designed the ad for a PETA contest. It was shown on a mobile billboard that drove through the streets outside the racetrack at Churchill Downs throughout the weekend, and will continue to be used as the Triple Crown season continues.
“The billboard draws attention to the misuse of both “therapeutic” and illegal drugs that the racing industry uses to keep injured and tired horses running, leading to the deadly breakdown of more than three horses every day on U.S. racetracks.” according to PETA’s website.
