Art Gone Wild, Art Made by the OKC Zoo’s Animals for Animals

September 1 @ 9:00 am - September 30 @ 5:00 pm

ART GONE WILD, ART MADE BY THE OKC ZOO’S ANIMALS FOR ANIMALS

Art by animals for animals – that’s the unique focus of Art Gone Wild, the Oklahoma City Zoo’s collection of original animal paintings. View this year’s new pieces from various animals including elephants, giraffe, goats, ostrich, various reptiles, sea lions, tigers and more on display and available for purchase at the Zoo. With assistance from their caretakers, each animal applies its own technique from paint brushes to using their noses, feathers, flippers or paws to paint! Art Gone Wild is part of the Zoo’s enrichment program and the paints are safe for the animals to use as they are non-toxic and washable. Prices for these wild works of art range from $35 to $300, depending on size. All net proceeds benefit one of the Zoo’s conservation initiatives. Art Gone Wild will be on display in the Zoo’s Guest Services office located in the Entry Plaza from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Masks are required for all guests 11 and older upon entry into Guest Services. To learn more, call (405) 425-0262.
