Mark Barone and Marina Dervan: 5,500 Shelter Dog Portraits and the Museum of Compassion

In this interview, Mark Barone, painter, and Marina Dervan, who does everything else from public relations to social media, describe their vision for a Museum of Compassion. They have put their own lives on hold for three and half years and spend their retirement money on this project. The first part of the process is painting by hand 5,500 shelter dogs paintings, representing the number of dogs killed in shelters each day. Mark is now at 4,900 and in the home stretch. The biggest hurdle for the project, however, is yet to come: finding a venue to place the photos and creating the Museum of Compassion. Listen to this passionate interview by two people who have let no obstacle prevent them from attaining their goal.
