Save the date: Go wild with art at the Oklahoma City Zoo

OKLAHOMA CITY – From gorillas to giraffes and stingrays to sea lions, art is created using a wild palette at the Oklahoma City Zoo.

The Zoo will be hosting its fifth annual Art Gone Wild art show at the a.k.a. gallery (3001 Paseo) in Oklahoma City’s Paseo Arts District from August 1-30, 2014.

The public is also invited to the exhibition’s opening night, Friday, August 1, from 6 -10 p.m. during the First Friday Gallery Walk.

The show features original pieces of art created by the Zoo’s own talented, animal artists made especially for the show (with some help from their care givers).

Techniques vary by animal. Some animals enjoy using paint brushes while others choose to paint with their trunks, paws and even noses!

The exhibition provides guests an opportunity to view and purchase these one-of-a-kind works of art.
