Description

Stop by the Art Gone Wild booth at Weems International Artfest to buy original works of art created by Zoo animals. ABQ BioPark residents, including elephants, primates, alligators and insects, painted canvasses with their toes, tails and even paintbrushes.

Proceeds from art sales provide enrichment items for animal artists at the Zoo. Keepers set up monthly painting sessions and other enrichment activities to provide animals with exercise and stimulation. All paint used is non-toxic.

Visit the Art Gone Wild page to read about animal artists and view their work.
