Art Gone Wild: Paintings by OKC Zoo Animals

None
Saturday August 17
In Your Eye Gallery, in the Historic Paseo Arts District, will present its third annual "Art Gone Wild: Paintings by OKC Zoo Animals," showcasing original art by the animal artists. The opening reception is Friday, August 2 from 6:00pm-10:00pm. The show runs through Saturday, August 31. Gallery hours are Thursday-Saturday from noon to 5 pm.
 
With their paws, claws, noses, and even lips, many of the animals at the Oklahoma City Zoo have been creating new masterpieces for this year's Art Gone Wild art show. The Zoo's talented residents have made each work of art especially for the show, with some help from their caregivers. Art by zoo animals is part of the 'animal enrichment' process of providing a stimulating environment that addresses an animal's social, psychological and physical needs. Techniques vary by animal: Some use a brush, while others enjoy rolling in, slithering through, or spraying paint onto their canvases. The paints are non-toxic and washable, so creating art is safe for the animals. New art is continuously added to the show, as our animals continue to create.
 
In addition to the animal art, the In Your Eye artists have created unique art works using ostrich eggs from the zoo. The eggs will be available for purchase.
    
 
This exhibition allows guests a rare opportunity to view and purchase one-of-a-kind works of art. All proceeds benefit the Zoo's conservation projects.
 
Come see the show, purchase a painting, and support a great cause: animal conservation
